Simon Alexander – Along Came June
Sweden knows no shortage of great musicians and iconic pop bands but not every Swedish musician creates pop and not everybody is a star although for us Gothenburg-based Simon Alexander is a star. We first featured the singer/songwriter in 2018 with his single “Last Dance,” and later in 2020 with “Heading Nowhere.” Add another two years and we’re excited to feature “Along Came June” now.
The allure of “Along Came June” becomes instantly apparent thanks to its catchy guitar strumming and soaring chorus, paired with a touch of nostalgia and a lot of longing. Asked about the track, Alexander says:
”With summer comes a plethora of emotions – especially for young adults living freely and learning about the ways of life. “Along Came June” is a song about watching your own back to avoid being taken advantage of – ‘cus with summer also comes the more animalistic side of man.”
The emotional whirlwind is beautifully captured in the song’s melodic, impassioned vibe. Stunning!
