joan - 'nervous'

Acclaimed alt pop duo joan today announce a twenty date nationwide U.S. headlining tour beginning May 13th, to support their upcoming highly anticipated debut album 'superglue', out April 19th via Photo Finish Records.

In addition, the duo have shared their latest single ‘nervous’ with an accompanying music video. The single is the latest off of their twelve-track full length which is over three years in the making, following their beloved EPs 'portra', 'cloudy', 'hi' and 'bye'. Entitled 'superglue'the album is an existential journey influenced by the duo’s recent transition into fatherhood.

Their latest single ‘nervous’ takes listeners back to their own memories on the school yard experiencing their first crush. This kind of infatuation stirs a myriad of intense emotions and with ‘nervous’, joan brilliantly depicts that thrilling yet unsettling feeling of intoxication. The emotional and nostalgic single entices with honey-dipped vocals over a unique kaleidoscope of sounds including beatboxing, clapping and wistful acoustic guitars. The accompanying video showcases joan singing against radiant light-filled hues of neon pink, blue and green.

The band shared, "We wrote this song with the lovely Emily Falvey of Nashville and Jonathan Capeci from Nightly, and the second we all walked into the room together there was immediate chemistry between us. We wanted to get as close to the emotion of a sort of school like love story, where you constantly want to be around them but you also literally feel like you’re going to throw up because you’re so... nervous (wink), and you don’t want to say the wrong thing around them. it’s such a cool and distinct feeling, we hope this song takes you back to that place.”

joan have enjoyed U.S. and international tours supporting the likes of Jeremy Zucker, COIN, Bloc Party and The Aces, as well as playing to fans across Asia with headline shows and festivals in the Philippines, Thailand, Singapore and Hong Kong - they return to Asia for the biggest shows yet, includes dates at a basketball arena and a theme park.

joan’s infectious blend of pop eras and styles belies their roots in Little Rock, Arkansas, but their sense of warmth and community from those around them at home gives their music a sense of belonging often missing from others’ and that extends to their fanbase, with whom they interact via a successful Patreon page and through free meet and greets at every show. 2023 promises to be the band’s biggest yet, with the release of their debut album and worldwide touring and festivals.
