We are pleased to share the shoegaze track ‘June’ from indie band The Day via Sinnbus today. ‘June’ talks about friendship and how people drift apart when time and space get in the way of a good thing sometimes. Hazy and dreamy vocals cascade this track along with spaced out guitar notes. Definitely a song that perfectly sums up the heartache of losing a friend, The Day are a delight for indie listeners who want to listen to alternative lyrics that touch on other areas of life.
The band share: “June’ is a real coming-of-age song. The song is about a deep friendship that somehow got lost on the way to adulthood. The lyrics tell of the carelessness of teenagers, of the unclear boundaries between friendship and love, of living in the moment. At the same time, fears and worries emerge, about one’s own future, about the world itself. The older you get, the more space they take up and push friendship more and more into the background until it finally fades away completely.”
Johan Kull, 31, has been working as a musician and producing music for other artists, as well as being in multiple bands, for ten years. He has studied at the Musicians Institute in Los Angeles and the Royal College of Music in Stockholm, Sweden.
Dreams, which is the first release from his solo project, came to be while studying at the Royal College of Music.
Johan is inspired by artists such as Bon Iver, Finneas and Phoebe Bridgers, and describes his music as melodious och emotional alternative pop, with in uences from dream pop and shoegaze. His melancholic music is characterized by it’s dreamy soundscapes and layers of vocals.
The atmospheric sound of Dreams tells the tale of dreaming as the more tangible reality.
– The song deals with the false reality that dreams can create. When you build this utopian world in your head, how perfect that can be, and how equally horrifying it can be having that taken away when you wake up. But it’s also about the disappointment of expectations being squandered, when reality isn’t up to par with your dreams.
Johan is planning on releasing more singles later this year and an EP is scheduled for 2021.
