Los Angeles art-rockers Goon have a new album out this Friday called Hour of Green Evening. Today, they’re previewing it with the advance single ‘Emily Says’, which follows previous entries ‘Angelnumber 1210’ and ‘Ochre’. Give it a listen below.
Frontman Kenny Becker wrote the new song about his wife Emily Elkin, who plays cello in Angel Olsen’s live band and has worked with Olivia Rodrigo, Halsey, Troye Sivan, and more. “This song is about how her and I meeting each other was the most joyful thing to ever happen to both of us, but also didn’t cure either of us from our anxieties or depression,” Becker said in a press release. “I wanted to focus on the heart-wringing conflict between those two things.”
