Now Playing: Sunflower Thieves – 'Two Halves'

Wednesday, September 19, 2018

Folk-pop duo Sunflower Thieves shared their touching and personal new single 'Two Halves' earlier this month. Starring Amy Illingworth and Lily Sturt-Bolshaw, Sunflower Thieves started their journey around fifteen years ago when they met at primary school.

Their new single 'Two Halves' is an emotional track about an accident a close friend had, where she lost her memory as a result. Through their reflective lyrics, they talk about wanting to be there for their friend, but not wanting to intrude on her new life and new memories. Their vocal harmonies are full of heart and each word is supported by emotional depth. The gentle nature of the track, along with their mellowed guitar chords and rolling percussion, adds to the weight of their words.

If you're based in the UK, you can catch Sunflower Thieves playing a handful of sets this October and November. Click here to find out where!
