Out today from London’s Fresh: ‘Morgan & Joanne’ is our track of the day today.
An instantly cheering poppy punk song that every bit as heart-warming as the story it’s based on – that of a first date (which went viral in 2019) which included getting accidentally hammered, crashing a party together, and losing a pair of knickers … i.e. total first date goals. (Or 12th wedding anniversary date goals even!)
Talking about the new track, lead singer Kathryn Woods (Me Rex, cheerbleederz) said:
“I wrote Morgan & Joanne because I was so struck by the charm of Morgan and Joanne and how they turned what had the potential to be a really typical first date into an adventure. The song is about the magic of meeting someone who you really fancy for the first time and kind of escaping into a different realm with them. I think popular media and historical narratives tend to make queer relationships tragic instead of focusing on all the joy and possibilities that they hold, so I wanted to put a song out there that’s sweet and funny and empowering to counter that a little bit.”
