Sonically, “Moment in the Sun” is quite a departure from the glammy ’70s rock of their Twentytwo in Blue sophomore record or last year’s King of the Dudes EP. It’s firmly in the indie pop sphere, modern synth intersplicing jangly ’80s pop guitar lines on the chorus.
“All that other noise is just a waste of time/ You’re the only music on my mind,” sings Julia Cumming on the hook. “I don’t need money, I don’t need to be cool/ I’d trade it for a moment in the sun with you.” It’s that focus on spending time with loved ones that makes 202 the perfect time for Sunflower Bea to share “Moment in the Sun”.
They’ve also teamed with director Andy DeLuca for a music video co-starring When They See Us actor Marquis Rodriguez. The clip finds Cumming going through her isolated routine, every action reminding her in flashback of times spent with her paramour. It’s a whimsical and lovely visual, so check it out below.
