Jonny Pierce is going back to his pre-drums roots, and releasing a song that could’ve been taken from the back catalogue of old band Goat Explosion (yes, you read that right). From the sounds of it, his upcoming solo album will be more electronica than nostalgic indie pop, but he’ll be sticking with his distorted, broody vocals and melancholy, wistful lyrics (“just when I thought I knew what was going on, you cut my heart out“). The combination surprisingly works really well, and if Jonathan’s claims that he’s being “as self indulgent as possible with this album” are to be believed, it’s a shame he’s been so selfless with his music thus far.
The song is accompanied by a similarly brooding and nostalgic video, which you can watch below.
