"No Longer Young Enough" by The Just Joans
We are drawn to Glasgow band The Just Joans by their sharp-eyed and witty songwriting, twee sensibility and melodic sense. Any band that can make us laugh and sigh, often in the same song, is a band to keep in your playlist. Later this year we will be graced with For Those About To Weep, their new LP. However, we don't have to wait that long for a bit of The Just Joans, as the single "No Longer Young Enough" will be released tomorrow. Consisting of the title track and "Breakfast for Our Tea", it is just what we needed to hold us over until the album is available. Check out the title track below, which offers girl-group vocals pointing out that for all of us, there is a time when Friday nights/Saturday mornings in the clubs becomes reading at home in our PJs and an early lights out.
Both the single and the album are to be released via Fika Recordings.
