Gold Coast-based (Kombumerri Country) First Nations artist Sunny Luwe, formerly known as Dani Teveluwe, returns to captivate listeners with her latest release, Summer Kisses. Following the success of her synth-y summer dream Fly Like A Bird, Sunny Luwe embraces her authentic musical journey with this blissful indie-folk gem, out today (Friday, June 2).
As a natural-born storyteller and Weilwan woman, Sunny Luwe effortlessly warms our winter with the sweetness of Summer Kisses. The track showcases her remarkable vocal ability, blending lush vocal layers, sweet subtle harmonies, and an effortless delivery that dances between near spoken word and a heartwarming vocal style. Recorded in a home studio, this labour of love underwent a transformative process to capture the essence of the song’s true sweetness.
Collaborating with Matt Collins of WHARVES, Sunny Luwe found the perfect musical partnership to bring Summer Kisses to life. Their creative synergy is evident in the dreamy instrumentation and uplifting melodies that instantly transport listeners to sunny, blue-sky days. This upbeat and pleasant track invites you to stroll barefoot, bask in its warm and relaxing atmosphere, and immerse yourself in its lulling indie-folk charm.
In alignment with her commitment to the environment, Sunny Luwe has made her musical project carbon-neutral through carbon offsetting. With a deep sense of gratitude, she calculated the carbon footprint generated by the entire single release and offset it by donating funds to Rainforest 4, a North Queensland Conservation project focused on protecting the Daintree Rainforest from deforestation and preserving our old-growth rainforests.
Inspired by fellow artists in the industry, Sunny Luwe demonstrates her dedication to effecting meaningful change by supporting Rainforest 4’s mission through carbon offsetting. She recognizes the power of her guide (found on her artist webpage) she created to help encourage others to embrace carbon offsetting and contribute to a sustainable future.
As an artist who has received airplay on prominent radio stations such as Triple J, Double J, and community radio across Australia as well as Spotify editorial playlists including Original Storytellers, Sunny Luwe continues to captivate audiences and turn heads with her undeniable talent. Recently named an Indigenous Award Finalist for the 2023 Queensland Music Awards, Sunny Luwe is poised to make an even greater impact on the music scene.
Summer Kisses is available on all major streaming platforms now, inviting listeners to warm their hearts and souls repeatedly with this delightful tune. Embrace the feel-good vibes and let Sunny Luwe‘s musical magic transport you to sun-drenched days and carefree moments.
