Followers of our blog will know I’m something of a fan of June Swoon. I really dug her debut album and even had her on the podcast for a chat. Her new project with Nate moves a little further away from the classic country of June Swoon and more into dreamy lo-fi bedroom pop. Their new single Arcade is swimming in fuzzy layers of guitar and mournful harmonies. The lyrics tether the piece to the Earth though, full of imagery and emotion.

Arcade is a great expansion of Juli’s catalogue and she assures me there’s more June Swoon on the way. You can check out the track below.
