It has been a fair few months since Annie DiRusso last released even a snippet of a song.
But today, to make up for her musical output’s lengthy absence, she has released not one, but two brand new singles.
The New York-based, folk artist’s decision to drop ‘Jonathan’ and ‘Don’t Swerve’ simultaneously, stems from the fact that both tracks share similar traits – be it lyrically or emotionally – and have been composed to both complement and juxtapose each other at the same time.
Themes of unrequited love, for example, are touched on and explored in each track, but musically the songs differ.
Where the somber tone of ‘Jonathan’ slowly burns over a Snow Patrol-esque guitar riff reminiscent of ‘Chasing Cars’, ‘Don’t Swerve’ is a happier track that skips a long a little more positively.
Both tracks can be listened now below:
