Following the release of her debut single “My World” in January, Piper King worked hard to follow up with second single “October Sun“, a mellow jangly dreampop track that evokes lazy days in the sun but is also heavily drenched in melancholy and fleeting memories . “October Sun” premieres today (despite it being February) and deals with changes on a personal level in times of fast global changes.
Piper explains: “Have you ever moved to a new place you were really excited about? A fresh start and a new environment to thrive in? But then the world shifts and you suddenly become drenched in a river of nostalgia for your life before. Even though you still love your new life and the place you live, you can’t help but long for the people and life you left behind. Especially in a pandemic where you can’t go back to visit those who made a huge impact on your life and the place that shaped this critical period. I moved to California from Colorado right before the pandemic hit.“
“Faces that I dreamt but when I woke up, they were all so real. I really don’t believe the life that was given to me— in a place so bleak and yet so bright”.
