joan will release new album ‘superglue’ on April 19th.
The alt-pop duo are a formidable pairing, with a series of singles, EPs, and other projects illuminating their golden touch.
The American outfit have finally completed work on their long-awaited debut album, one that acts as a coming of age, following their transition into fatherhood. The resulting changes have reconfigured their lives, and – as a result – their art.
“It’s totally wrecked our world and we both have been going through a lot of the same growth that comes alongside being a parent. It’s changed our whole process of writing, and way more than just like having a kid and making every song about them. It’s made us think more about who we are as people, what we want to put into the world and what we want to get out of it, just reflecting on life way more than I think we ever have.”
“This album as a whole is about the past and the present happening at the same time, it’s about dreams for the future and hoping for a better tomorrow but missing yesterday. It’s by far the best and most meaningful music we’ve ever made, it has something for everyone, and we hope it means something to you too.”
New single ‘flowers’ is a blast of pop innocence, a rush of melody that enraptures from first note to last. The band say…
“I remember running around the streets of my best friend’s neighborhood after midnight, skipping around from friend to friends house. I remember rushing to my friend’s house after school to rehearse our new songs in his garage. I remember driving around town after the sun went down just because we could. you make so many memories in those formative years. You never think to yourself, “this won’t last forever”. but then you grow. It happens slow – years go by, seasons change. That’s just life. If you’re lucky, some of those people stick around. but for a lot of us, you’re left asking, “why don’t we talk anymore?”. That’s what this song is to us.”
Tune in now.
