Much feted indie band Only Sun, who earned 1.6 million Spotify streams last year when they released a new song every month, are back. It’ll Be Alright, written on a rainy day in High Wycombe, is all about the joys of summer. The band explained that “musings of roadkill and slugs are replaced with fantasies of pub gardens and sangria. Suddenly all your cares are washed away as you drink in the sun and revel in the summertime. Let the sweet taste of sun engulf you and just know It’ll Be Alright.”
It remains to be seen whether the video for the calypso infused single, out on June 27, will be quite as compelling as 2018’s NHS70. It introduces the killer line “God bless the NHS for patching me up and not judging my errors,” and singer Euan Bryden gamely taking the brunt of chucked hot dogs, sauces, feather, paint and more!
Only Sun will be aiming to extend the summery atmosphere by touring through the UK in October and November.
