‘June’ sees Petrie return to see the summer out with a quarter-life crisis posing as a sun-soaked banger. Featuring frequent collaborator and hilarious muse JESS who’s pipes and lyrical genius pop up throughout the track.
Petrie explain: “This is a song for when neither you nor your lover wants to admit the relationship is deteriorating, simply because you want to enjoy a gorgeous summer. No amount of factor fifty is gonna save you from the sun’s deceptively malevolent glare.”
Sonically, ‘June’ is a heated debate between a bunch of restless keyboards and a drunken rhythm section, all being egged on by a boisterous bass synthesizer. The tune is strung together by a woozy wah-guitar riff that does its best to stop the mad groove from falling on its face.
In 2017, Petrie made their mark with the release ofSlurs EP, a collection of four distinctive, playful and genre-bending tracks praised by the likes of Complex, Stereogum, NYLON, Highclouds, Hillydilly and many more from the online music community and beyond.
