June Swoon is a singer-songwriter from Los Angeles who delivers a country style tinged with the cynicism of modern life.
By Graeme Smith
It is with complete self-awareness that June compares her sound to that of Jenny Lewis and it is unmistakable from the first few bars of new track Marrying Kind. Vocally and lyrically there is a lot to like in June’s sound for fans of the first lady of modern Americana. There are certainly worse artists from which to take inspiration.
Comparisons aside, June’s sound is joyfully bittersweet. Marrying Kind is a story of doomed romance underpinned by a plodding bass, distorted electric guitar and pop sensibilities. Check it out below.
