The summer often finds a way of mixing magic and melancholy, and it proves to be the case once more on “Young”, the beautiful lead track from Sun June’s new record, set to be released later this year. Palpably a song for the aforementioned season, the track could quite easily slip in to the sultriness of long sun-filled days, it’s outward persuasion one of bright vocals and buoyant musical spirals, but pear through the cracks and something is revealed; a yearning for something as yet untouched, a sadness needling away at the core.

Arriving this-coming June, via Keeled Scales beautifully blossoming roster, the new record is the debut LP from Laura Colwell and Stephen Salisbury’s tender project, and was introduced last week by the track “Young”, with a beautiful new self-directed video. New album ‘Years’ is pitched as a “we’ve-been-broken-up-a-long-time” album  which might go someway toward explaining that balance between sunniness and solitude.

At just two-and-a-half minutes, “Young” is a fleeting first glimpse of the record but it feels far broader than its running-time suggests, the lilt of the voice, both brooding in its verses and punchy in the chorus’ hooks, giving way to a charming splash of instrumental that underpins the whole thing with a country-like sway that has always been a skeleton key for heartache. Brooding and quietly powerful, it makes for a beautiful first-step
