Basement Revolver‘s ‘Johnny Pt. 2’ is taken from the band’s second EP, Agatha, due for release on July 21st.
Lead singer Chrisy Hurn‘s vocals are wonderful and I love that sense of hopeful melancholy throughout. Turn explains:
Johnny Pt. 2 was written almost directly after I broke up with “Johnny” – it was the heartbreak caused by an end, the wish that I could have been better, and the desire to continue a friendship. When a friendship wasn’t possible, I wanted them to know that heartbreak or not, I would be there if needed – I would put aside all the things that broke our relationship and the things that gave me identity for a chance at friendship. In hindsight, I have since learned a lot about myself, and that I don’t need to disappear in order to have people that I care about in life.
