Sun Giant

Album: Sun Giant EP (2008)
  • Lead singer and songwriter Robin Pecknold (fromDaytrotter): "This one was meant to be just a simple 'ode' of sorts to the simplest things in life. I often get really caught up in minutiae in my day to day life so this song is just a reminder (to myself I guess) that there is value in just looking at the sun (or something equally simple) and not thinking about anything else."
