joan are a bit sad in their new video for ‘brokenhearted’

Feat. a pretty great sofa.

joan have unleashed a new teaser from their upcoming EP.

‘brokenhearted’ features on their upcoming six-tracker ‘cloudy’, due for release on 6th August – the follow-up to 2018’s ‘porta’.

“[It’s] an ep about seasons,” the capitals-averse duo explain. “created in the fall, introduced live in the winter, finished in the spring, released in the summer. we made ‘cloudy’ to tell a story of one relationship and the fact that love can be messy but so beautiful. you know you shouldn’t be with them right now, but you *have* to be with them, right now.

“as we were finishing the record, we were forced to be in quarantine and spend more time at home. we both took to walking every evening, and would text each other pictures of the sky while doing it. it felt like the name for the ep had fallen in our laps after talking about it one day.

“clouds can create a beautiful or terrifying scene, they can bring refreshing rain or a destructive storm. when you see clouds, it’s probably not great at the moment, but it will get better. that’s what this ep is about – getting better, growth, loving harder, and learning from mistakes.”
