Los Angeles based singer-songwriter Tuffet Bunnies is thrilled to share “Lucky Number,” the first single since his debut EP Love Songs For Scarlett. “Lucky Number” is a charming indie folk love song, complete with acoustic guitar, saxophone, and Clem Darling’s soothing, breathy vocals. His warm, easygoing essence is easily for fans of Devendra Banhart, Ingrid Michaelson, or Noah and the Whale.
Tuffet Bunnies released his debut EP Love Songs for Scarlett in late 2016 and shared a music video for the featured single “Everything” in January. The video sees Clem Darling enjoying a day at the park surrounded by loving couples, an acrobat, and a sparkly butterfly. The video perfectly depicts the delightful, happy-go-lucky love song.
