This year holds the news of a new EP in March, the single Tucson from the release making it's way into the world today.
Known for thoughtful songwriting, Siobhan captures the story of a small country town in Tucson, with drug addicted cowboys, gas stations, boulevard queens, and broken dreams, set to big warm bass-lines, sliding guitars, and the singer's earnest and dynamic vocals. On the inspiration behind the track, Siobhan shares that "Tucson’s narrator, in my head, is a lonely dive bar singer whose partner has just left them. They are slowly coming to terms with the reality of being trapped in their small hometown, whilst they have bigger dreams to fulfill."
Be sure to get caught up in the neo-western landscape of Tucson below, as we await the Highways and Heartbreaks EP release on March 31.
