Video premiere: Hillsburn's "Sun Ought To Shine"

Get ready for some shivers—good ones.

Hillsburn’s envious momentum hasn’t slowed much since its formation in 2014. In 2016 Hillsburn won a Canadian Folk Music Award for New/Emerging Artist of the Year, and started work on a new album—its sophomore offering after 2016’s In The Battle Years—which will be released this year. Recently a Kickstarter raising money for that same album is going like a house on fire, and a 2017 ECMA win for Fans’ Choice Video of the Year for “Run Down” ices the Hillsburn cake.

Hillsburn (Paul Aarntzen, Clare Macdonald, Rosanna Burrill, Clayton Burrill, Jackson Fairfax-Perry) makes gorgeous, evocative music that swirls together pop, rock and folk. The latest one-take video for “Sun Ought to Shine” shows off more of the same emotional power. They put it all out there.
