Since the band featured Ric Menck and Paul Chastain of The Velvet Crush, I feel like I should be familiar with The Springfields. However, they only released five singles between 1986 and 1991, so I can forgive myself. Slumberland Records is reissuing these singles as Singles 1986-1991, and we can listen to "Sunflower" right now. "Sunflower" is a gorgeous, shimmering indiepop song. It has equal parts the sunny pop of The Byrds and the twee feelings of Belle & Sebastian. It's a gorgeous song that sounds perfectly of its time and like it could have been released for the very first time last week.
You can listen to "Sunflower" below. Singles 1986-1991 will be released on Slumberland Records on November 15. The reissue can be pre-ordered here. For more on The Springfields, check out Slumberland Records's website.
