You know that bit in all good 80s coming-of-age films when the best friend watches on as the two protagonists – normally the geeky girl and the popular boy, let’s not lie – come together on the dance floor at prom and as they’re staring into each other’s eyes suddenly that perfect song comes on and they fall in love mid-slow dance as said best friend’s eyes fill with tears?
Well Arkansas duo joan are dropping that perfect song today.
The fourth track from the dream-pop pair, “i loved you first” is a synth-filled sizzler documenting unrequited love. Dazzling with 80s inspiration, it’s an absolutely beautiful track and an anthem for all of those who have to stand on the sidelines and watch their perfect match in the arms of someone else. An exciting look at what is to come from the pair, get ready to be hit right in the #feels and love it.
Duckie from Pretty in Pink – this one’s for you.
