In an era where fear and uncertainty are our closest companions, gloomy june is there to tell you uncertainty can be okay. Named for the cold fog that surrounds their hometown of San Francisco at the beginning of the Summer, gloomy june is the soundtrack of a beach party tinged with melancholy. gloomy june songs are pop refracted through an anxious lens: sometimes anthemic, often queer, and always a little tragic. Written through late 2020 and early 2021, when the global pandemic made going to house parties and shows seem like a past life, their new EP, Popsick, explores social woes with a near-nostalgic tone. If you’ve ever felt “othered”, or if the world has made you more anxious than you’re used to, gloomy june is for you.
