Sun June – Karen O [Music Video]

Sun June is a band from Austin Texas,
Today they dropped the single and music video for Karen O.
The track is taken from the album Somewhere which doesn’t come until February 5, 2021 via Run For Cover/Keeled Scales

The actual Karen O is a hero of ours of course, and in the song she spurs on a lonely night of reflection about what could be versus what can’t.

They got lucky and happened to shoot during a lightning storm, so they went full melodrama with it.”
