One of the greatest feats of pop music is that it can be found in all the little corners of the world, even the unexpected ones. The Little Rock, Arkansas alt pop duo joan is here to prove just that with the release of their newest single, "ease your mind".
Comprised of Alan Thomas and Steven Rutherford, joan is a sincere effort concentrated on bringing joy and youthful bewilderment back into the world when it most needs it. Using their quirky lyrics as the building blocks, "ease your mind" effortlessly fills in the spaces with clean, uncomplicated synths and charming hooks. The ease with which these two navigate their soundscape is a refreshing reminder of how pop should be: simple, unrestricted, and above all, fun. Because if you can't make a video about turning into a ghost and stalking your crush on her date that you wish you were on instead- why bother making music at all?
To celebrate the release, joan will be playing a special hometown show in Little Rock at Rev Room on Friday, October 25 – tickets are available now.
