New York’s very own JW FRANCIS has announced his brand new album ‘Dream House’ – his third with London based label Sunday Best Recordings. Coinciding with the announcement is the gloriously up-beat new single ‘Casino,’ which offers a glimpse into what to expect on his forthcoming feel-good LP.
When JW isn’t writing songs about his own life or surreal imagery, he writes about other people – most notably around the month of February when he writes valentines songs on his fans’ behalf. 
‘Dream House’ encapsulates all of this and forms a collection of glorious tracks written for other people:

“Every year, about 6 weeks before Valentine’s Day, I make the following post on social media: “If you send me the name of your Valentine, and the reason you love them, I’ll write a song for them on your behalf.”

GRIEF SCENE are a three-piece indie rock band based in Berlin. They write loud, heartfelt songs about love, friendship and climate anxiety. Formed in 2020 by Ian Tilling (Trapped Mice, Leoprrrds), the band started as a solo project which saw the release of debut album Bad Times in November 2020. He was soon joined by drummer Brandon Walsh, who in turn invited his friend and bandmate Sally Brown to contribute bass and vocals. This intense musical partnership, forged on stage with Berlin bands Gurr and Plattenbau, proved the perfect foil to Tilling’s breathless guitar, while Brown’s soaring vocal harmonies can be heard to spine-tingling effect on early singles ‚R U Still in 2 It‘, ‚Crossing Wires‘ and ‘Wedding Planner’.
