For a good while we’ve championed the indie pop sounds of Austin’s Sun June. Mixing gentle vocals and careful arrangements within a delicate pop structure, the five piece has always had their own sound that works well on its own. Now they’ve revealed a new album Somewhere set for release in February and their new single “Karen O” should introduce them to the wider audience they deserve to be in front of.
The soft build is where the magic lies for the band, and it’s present here. The vocals get things started, holding your attention while the music balances delicately underneath. The uptick in instrumentation forces the track to unfold like a flower, as the heft of the build grows mightier and mightier. The vocals being the lead places the melody in your head as you enjoy each well crafted note in the process.
The video for “Karen O” can be viewed above or on YouTube. The song is ready to stream on all platforms. Somewhere can be preordered directly from Keeled Scales/Run For Cover Records ahead of its February 05 release.
