Slowburn

Album: Heartstrings (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • This song finds frontwoman Junita Stein expressing her impatience at the tortuous speed it takes in getting music released. "The very nature of any artist is to create, and then share this creation," she explained to Drowned in Sound. "Some art forms require more or less time going through the machine, before exposing itself. The journey for an independent spirited artist in the 21st century requires the patience of a f--king saint. The challenge lies in maintaining inspired throughout the process. This song bottles my frustration at all of that."
