Sunfruits return with apocalyptic love song, ‘Made To Love'
4 August 2022
Nearly two years on from their last single release ‘Mushroom Kingdom’, Sunfruits have returned with their new garage-rock anthem, ‘Made To Love’ and we couldn't be more thrilled! Engineered by Theo Carbo, produced by Sunfruits' Gene Argiro and mixed / mastered by John Lee at Phaedra Studios (The Murlocs, Bananagun), the single showcases an exciting, fresh direction from the Melbourne/Naarm psychedelic pop group.

‘Made To Love’ is a fiery 2:30 minute track about "running away with your soulmate to escape the hellish landscape of life under capitalism." Filled with distorted guitar riffs, duelling vocals, ethereal strings and crunchy bass and drum combo, this track throws it back to the glam-rock sounds of T-Rex and the 70s revivalism of Ty Segall, showcasing a powerful maturity in the band’s sound and songwriting.
Sunfruits frontman Winter McQuinn wrote ‘Made To Love’ while he and his partner Acacia Coates (Pinch Points) were living in regional Victoria during the 2021 lockdown.
"We wrote the lyrics together when we were both feeling the pull and desire to move out of the city and get away from the nine-to-five lifestyle. The song's message follows this desire about wanting to leave the city life behind and enjoy each other's company as we ride out the Apocalypse.”
Complementing the revivalist sound of ‘Made To Love’, the single comes with an equally retro music video directed and edited by Sunfruits guitarist and vocalist on the track, Evie Vlah. Hooning around in a red Ford Mustang, with bright lights, vintage outfits and a stage performance that could be straight out of Countdown, the video amplifies the song's ode to 70s rock and love.
