Sunbear – Flutterbye

You can now buy this song and the rest of the album on our record label Indiecater Records here!

Some things just weren’t meant to be, no matter how beautiful the creation. Sunbear were a short-lived quartet from Dublin who produced a spellbinding album and follow up EP way back in the mid nineties. Martin Kelly was the lead vocalist with the choirboy dream pop tonsils who could propel the jangling instrumentation into the realms of greatness. Of course, that greatness was under appreciated despite a pocket of critical love. One wonders how they would fare in an internet age where a small budget doesn’t necessarily hinder the distribution possibilities. ‘Flutterbye’ is a fey runaway, infested by a melancholic disposition yet ripe with possibilities. You’ll cherish the innocence and in an effort to embrace the sadness softly pinch its rosy cheek. KD
