The Song Confessional Podcast returns after many months in quarantine. Back in March, the SC put out the call for confessions about people’s pandemic experiences. Turns out people are still falling in and out of love while staying inside. The Love In Quarantine mini-season features original songs from Kam Franklin (The Suffers), GGOOLLDD, Esme Patterson, and Royal Teeth as well as a brand new theme song from Walker & the crew.
Episode 5 of the Song Confessional features the Austin-based, ‘regret pop’ group, Sun June and the world premiere of their new song “Terrified”. You’ll hear the confessional that inspired it-a parent grappling with the unabiding fear that shadows deep love-and how Sun June works together to craft their ‘global cooling/Albuquerque prom’ serenades.
Episode 3 of the Song Confessional is here! You’ll hear one woman’s confession about her mom’s clandestine profession and the world premiere of the song it inspired, “It was Always There.” Later, you’ll learn all about the Romanian-born, Brooklyn based, lo-fi pop enthusiast, Vlad Holiday, and his boozy approach to producing. In case that wasn’t enough, Zac and Walker have a lively discussion about marijuana and trauma afterward!
