June Swoon is an artist I discovered near the end of last year and has been a constant feature on my playlist ever since. I was very excited when she announced her new single Play Something I Know.
By Graeme Smith
Her new track is somewhat rockier than what I’d grown used to on This Town Could Be Big Enough For The Both Of Us but at its heart is still some fantastic storytelling. In our recent interview for the podcast, she explained to me one of the drivers behind the track was experimenting with wordplay at it shows.
The other driver is to find something reassuring in uncertain times and that makes Play Something I Know a perfect anthem for recent years. From Brexit, to Donald Trump’s election in the US to coronavirus, I think we can all relate to that feeling. For June Swoon, that reassuring place is in music and the track distils that feeling nicely.
