SUNBEARS! – “Little Baby Pines”
We can’t quite remember how we first came across SUNBEARS!, it’s all a bit hazy. Our brains have been befuddled by their psychedelic indie-pop, lost in a blissed out haze of marbled colours, laughter and contentment.
This may all sound like this duo’s formative years were spent living feral with the Care Bears but they are actually from Jacksonville, Florida. These guys are the aural equivalent of popping candy, exploding in your ears with such sonorific delight. We haven’t heard such outright glee in music for far too long, it’s like watching your favourite Saturday morning cartoon as a kid. Unsurprising then that they have previously recorded a song for totally freaking crazy looking US kids show, Yo Gabba Gabba.
They are about to drop their debut album, You Will Live Forever, on 22 Nov but in the meantime you should head over to their Bandcamp page and get their Dream Happy Dreams EP which includes “Little Baby Pines” (stream above) and, incidentally, is worth a great deal more than the $1 minimum payment they are asking for.
