Austin, TX’s Sun June have shared a lyric video for their new single “Easy.” The song is one of three new unreleased tracks featured in Somewhere +3, the upcoming expanded version of their critically acclaimed 2021 album Somewhere. Somewhere +3 is out January 14th.
“‘Easy’ is a romantic struggle song. It’s about love and partnership and longstanding arguments that are hard to get past,” says Laura Colwell. “We started working on it after quarantine was lifted. Everyone had been cloistered alone for months, so frustration was easy to tap into. At the same time, it was joyous and cathartic to play together again, so the song came out upbeat and optimistic too. We loved getting to return to Good Danny’s studio to record—it was easy to find the sounds we wanted and get back into the Somewhere vibe.”
Sun June has also announced headline tours in February and March 2022 with Daphne Tunes and Katy Kirby, as well as a European tour with Ada Lea in January. The band is currently on tour with Shakey Graves. All dates can be found here.
"'Everything I had, I want it back,' Sun June's Laura Colwell sings on the Austin band's latest single - certainly a relatable refrain for these times. It's also a fittingly wistful sentiment for a band that playfully describes its sound as "regret pop," blending the melodic flutter of Colwell's voice with dreamy tempos that invite contemplation."

"The Austin, TX-based five-piece make unhurried, expansive indie-rock songs that are delicately, almost psychedelically stretched out; time, for them, is less a constraint as much as it is a new instrument to play with, a form to bend and subvert."
“Soft, cloudy pop… Sun June are interested in daydreams as both playground and prison, and about observing what happens when you collide with the borders of your own interiority.”
