Off the back of a 2020 which saw the release of their critically praised debut album ‘Tomalin Has Etched In’ and two breakout performances on COLORS, avant-indie duo Febueder return with "May Sun".
The invigorating single arrives at a perfect juncture, as the seasons change and we begin to emerge from a pandemic. The uplifting track is about coming through a period of difficulty into the light. Samuel Keysell, who for the first time sings lead on "May Sun", explains "The track is about stopping the act of taking on people's pains and worries and making them your own. A reminder to recognise beauty and optimism for the future. Like the May sun signaling an approaching summer, brighter things are ahead."
The innocent timbre of the kitschy keyboard, the overjoyed alto, mirthful bass and peppy percussion are the defining aspects of this bold and brilliant single. “It’s about hope” Kieran Godfrey expounds. "That feeling was a requisite. We decided very close to finishing the single that it’s better to remain cheerful as merriment is an uncommon evocation in our music; it's exciting to continually uplift without forcing it."
The stop-motion music video, directed by Samuel Keysell, embodies the track’s spirit of rejuvenation.  The floral arrangements bursting to life, showcasing at it’s simplest level, life’s cyclical nature and the opportunity to always emerge anew.
