Shaina Hayes unveils Sun and Time, the perfect folk-pop song to overcome the winter blues

After garnering praise from KCRW and Consequence with her single New Favorite, released in November 2023, Shaina Hayes returns today with Sun and Time, a song dedicated to those who've had any kind of encounter with the winter blues. This is the second single off Kindergarten Heart, due out via Bonsound on February 23rd. The album launch show will take place at Le Ministère, in Montreal, on April 4th, 2024. More shows are scheduled across Quebec in the spring.

With Sun and Time’s lyrics, Shaina Hayes summons the warmth and buzz of summers past, and urges the listener to hang tight while another one makes its way around. Drum-forward and built around a moody, strumming electric guitar, the song ventures a little farther into the realm of indie-pop, while maintaining Hayes’ signature tender, folky charm.

Sun and Time is accompanied by a music video created by Flavie Lemée and Charles-David Dubé using stunning footage captured during Shaina Hayes’ 2023 summer tour of Québec. Like the lyrics to Sun and Time, the video is a nostalgic nod to sunshine and summertime.

Kindergarten Heart is Shaina Hayes’ follow-up to to coax a waltz, released independently in 2022. On both albums, the singer-songwriter worked with Francis Ledoux and David Marchand (from the band zouz) who co-produced the record. Together, the three worked to gently weave elements of nostalgia, wonder and lightheartedness into this collection of songs. The result is a sophomore album which is both whimsical and earnest, and whose soothing charm is also reflected in the design of the record.

After the gray monotony of the pandemic, Hayes realized that it was going to take a focused effort for her to be able to tap back into joy and play. During this period, the initial theme of Kindergarten Heart began to take shape: the rekindling of childlike wonder. During the making of the album though, the theme evolved to encompass memory more broadly, not simply of childhood. In its final form, the album is about the act of looking back, either through an active lens to inform the current moment, or through a more passive lens, as a means of honoring these memories and the people they contain.
