    American pop standard "You Are My Sunshine" is synonymous with idyllic memories of youth and other feelings of merriment. But Copeland, the Lakeland, Fla.-based, indie alternative trio who've already brought soul-searching tracks like "Control Freak" and "Pin Your Wings," spin their own metaphorical thesis on the classic tune for their fourth studio effort, the aptly-titled You Are My Sunshine.

    "Initially, that song is very lovely and when you think of it, it immediately conjures up fine memories of your childhood, but actually it's super creepy in the latter verses of the song. It gets quite dark," says frontman Aaron Marsh. "But that's probably my favorite thing in art and music -- that line between lovely and creepy. A photo of a dandelion in a field would be a lovely image, but a shadow of a person you couldn't see would make it a bit creepier. And with that, all of our records have been very lovely on the whole. When people think of us, they think 'very pretty soft rock,' but we've been slowly growing up and wanting to not just be pretty music. There's another layer there, and for me that's the most interesting line ever."

    You Are My Sunshine -- the band's follow up to their Columbia debut, 2006's Eat, Sleep, Repeat and their first for the Seattle-based label Tooth
