Track of the Week – Only Sun – It’ll Be Alright
Matching the vibrancy of their latest summer smash with fittingly blue-sky visuals, the new video is a technicolour whirlwind of fun and optimism that washes down as palatably as Pimms at Wimbledon.
Directed by Cameron Perry, the ‘It’ll Be Alright’ video captures the band poised in wide-eyed anticipation of a long hot summer ahead. Throwing themselves well and truly into end of term party mode, we see the results of just what happens when the five piece’s irrepressible energy meets an unstoppable array of increasingly ludicrous inflatable objects…
Speaking about the ‘It’ll Be Alright’ Video, Only Sun say:
“A joyous explosion of sun and fun. That’s what the video for our new single is all about. Everything is better when the sun’s out. Everything is better when you’re with your friends. Combine the two? You know It’ll Be Alright.”
New single ‘It’ll Be Alright’ marks a strident return to Only Sun’s effervescent indie-pop roots. With its dancing calypso rhythms and balmy sun-kissed guitar lines, “It’ll Be Alright” is a shot of pure Vitamin D drenched euphoria, custom-made to soundtrack those ethereally long evenings and lush, languid days spent outdoors.
Laden with the same refreshingly optimistic outlook and good time vibes that have seen Only Sun winning over audiences across the nation left, right and centre in recent months, ’It’ll Be Alright’ is released on the brand new CLOSEUP Label and is already going down with fans like a Mr Whippy on a blazing hot day.
Making a case for being one of the hardest working band’s on the indie scene right now, Only Sun ambitiously delivered 12 top-drawer singles in 12 months in 2018 alone (racking up over 1.6 million Spotify streams in the process), before making their debut on the CLOSEUP label in 2019 with the sensational ‘VICE’. Frequently found in tastemaker playlists including The Indie List, Hot New Bands, New Music Friday UK and earning praise from BBC Radio 6 kingpins Steve Lamacq & Tom Robinson, and from Clash Magazine (who praised the band as: “five dreamers who want to make music that really says something”) and across the wider blogosphere, word is beginning to spread like wildfire about this intrepid indie five piece. And with a string of high profile sold out shows to their name across the UK in 2019 already, it’s clear that this band’s time in the sun is now.
The release of ‘Alright’ follows the confirmation of a recent tour slated for Autumn 2019; a string of dates that will see Only Sun play their biggest UK Headline shows to date. Full dates and details below:
