ginla, the duo of Joe Manzoli and Jon Nellen, have released a new song called ‘Carousel’, featuring Big Thief’s Adrianne Lenker.

“This song was written at the top of quarantine,” Nellen explained in a statement. “I was dealing with the ideas of mortality, consumption, life-planning, destruction–all things we were forced to confront in some way during the beginning of the pandemic. The idea is that all of these are revolving and evolving elements in life, like a carousel spinning in circles. I didn’t plan on writing this but it sort of spilled out subconsciously in a couple days in early April.”
