June Gloom aka Jesse Paller is set to release ‘Fake Problems’ on July 15th via Funeral Sounds Records. Ahead of the record, he’s just released a new track URL. You can take a listen via Bandwidth.fm.
URL lifted from June Gloom’s forthcoming album, ‘Fake Problems’ swells and dips, with enveloping guitars and Paller’s slightly bummed-out intonation. An L.A native, Paller felt drawn to the twang and reverb of surf music, but the musician puts his own moody spin on it. He calls his style “sad surf.” It’s about “being chill but also being sad,” he says with a laugh.
This is what Paller said about ‘Fake Problems’: “During my last two years of college I felt myself building feelings of alienation from my peers. After graduation I finally had some time and space to channel this sentiment into an album. The album’s process reflects the emotional isolation of the songs – I recorded and mixed ‘Fake Problems’ almost completely on my own, at my house in Northeast DC, between recording projects for my other bands Tall Friend and Boon. I play drums in both of those bands so this album was a chance to seek a perfect guitar sound while exorcising some personal demons.”
