JOAN Share Summer Anthem ‘want u back’
Summer-ready, dreamy synth-pop doesn’t get better than joan.
Arkansas duo joan are back in all their sun-kissed alt-pop glory as they offer an invigorating new cut, want u back, lifted from their second EP, cloudy, which will be released this Summer.
Finessing their delightful synth-infused pop sound, joan once again bring joy into our lives with their danceable new single. A song about “the person you can’t seem to let go of, even though letting go may be the best thing you could do”, want u back is an absolute summer bop, shimmering and twinkling with a myriad of textures. More groovy than their previous releases, the track flourishes with sparkling guitar and bass lines, and dynamic drums, leaving some space for the vocals to shine through. With a retro tinge to their sound, you simply won’t be able to resist the infectious energy emanating from this song. The accompanying visuals find the guys transforming from the duo into a self-replicating six piece band, adding an unexpected and witty twist to the track.
cloudy EP is set to arrive on August 6th via Photo Finish Records. Sharing more about the release, joan say:
“cloudy” is an ep about seasons. created in the fall, introduced live in the winter, finished in the spring, released in the summer. we made “cloudy” to tell a story of one relationship and the fact that love can be messy but so beautiful. you know you shouldn’t be with them right now, but you *have* to be with them, right now. as we were finishing the record, we were forced to be in quarantine and spend more time at home. we both took to walking every evening, and would text each other pictures of the sky while doing it. it felt like the name for the ep had fallen in our laps after talking about it one day. clouds can create a beautiful or terrifying scene, they can bring refreshing rain or a destructive storm. when you see clouds, it’s probably not great at the moment, but it will get better. that’s what this ep is about – getting better, growth, loving harder, and learning from mistakes.
want u back
love me better
