Austin-based quintet Sun June explores the ambivalence of the heart in their new single “Slow Rise II” where they touch upon the contradictory – yet symbiotic – feelings of love, regret, loneliness, and hope. It’s a mellow dreamy piece that explores the smudged emotional portrayal that we constantly struggle in finding concrete meanings. Stream below:
