“We wanted ‘Rare Sun’ to feel like the fuzzy recollection of summer memories. With guitar, synths, and steel drums shimmering and blurring together, and a vocal that sounds like something half-remembered, it feels like some sort of warm, nostalgic environment. It almost evokes that moment in the sun, where we can see warm colours through our closed eyelids, and have a moment to really relax and hear into the distance.”
