Sun June Premiere New Song ‘Discotheque’

SXSW standouts Sun June have revealed the second song and video from upcoming full-length, Years. Gorilla Vs. Bear premiered “Discotheque” today, noting the song’s “calm, familiar beauty and tinge of sadness.” The self-directed video follows Sun June through an affecting encounter with nostalgia, both gently devastating and sweetly celebratory.

The indie pop five-piece has also announced that their debut album will be out June 15 on Keeled Scales, home to kindred talent like Julia Lucille, Big Thief’s Buck Meek and more. Sun June will kick off a U.S. tour on April 29 at the Levitation after-party in Austin, sharing the venue with Waxahatchee, Hurray for the Riff Raff and Bedouine. Dates are listed below; more to be announced.


Today’s song follows “Young,” a delicately thumping and irresistibly resonant visit with the past that found its way onto taste-making playlists like Fresh Finds and NPR’s Staff Picks. Both songs boast a thoughtfully building blend of instrumentation, elevating Laura Colwell’s emotive vocals and illustrating this Austin outfit’s knack for feeling out a heart and ever so tenderly, breaking it.
