We approach all of Jonnines music with caution cos - hooks - she warned us about them. When her last record 'Super Natural was released last year the ohrwurm wasnt for leaving us in peace, for real it was almost too much - and this time, if you can believe it - its worse.
You get 9 songs - 9 - songs - there are chorus pedals and strings and endless atmospheres. The opener is a dream, blurred vision - heartache. The title track - pan flutes - this is basically The Cures Dressing Up remade. Except Jonnine has never heard The Top. Its all v weird and auspicious, a complete heart melt. Also, real?
"everyday motifs repeat, days blurring into one another, walking from room to room, twitter news before bed, your number is up, the last love song? walking on a tightrope, surrender, watching sun shadows move around the walls, the invisible, pretty flowers, sleeping with liquid cats, yokos tweets, supermarket zombies, subconscious messages, dreams that set the mood for the day, the ocean flooding the living room"
