TOMBERLIN – ” Sunstruck “

Posted: April 14, 2022 in MUSIC

Tomberlin today releases a video for “sunstruck,” an unconventional love song and the charming new single from her highly anticipated new album “i don’t know who needs to hear this…“, which is out April 29th. The video was directed by Ryan Schnackenberg.

“This is an aerial view love song that is also not a love song. It is more a love song to forced distance, time alone with yourself, letting go, searching for yourself and the healing that takes place when you make those things an active focus in your life,” says Sarah Beth Tomberlin. “These things are choices, they don’t just happen on their own. You can choose to practice them or you can choose stagnancy. This is a love song to the growth that often can take place if you choose to tend to your own life’s garden.”

Tomberlin is hitting the road this spring on US and EU tours. The solo EU tour kicks off next week in Paris, France with support from Maia Friedman and the full band US tour starts on May 13th in Somerville, MA with support from Jana Horn.

Tomberlin is Sarah Beth Tomberlin, a pastor’s kid born in Florida, raised in rural Illinois. She wrote the majority of her debut, “At Weddings” (2018), while living at home. For a while after leaving home and church, she lived in Louisville, Kentucky. She worked a day job and kept writing songs. She posted some of these songs to Bandcamp, which led to her signing a record deal with Saddle Creek. It all happened fast: Less than a year after her first live show, she performed on Jimmy Kimmel and she ended up moving to L.A. which is where she wrote “Projections” (2020), her EP follow up to “At Weddings”.
