Joan’s “Loner” Empowers Those Who Choose Solitude

Arkansas-born alt-pop duo Joan recently released their latest single, “Loner,” from their upcoming debut album, “super glue.” The song perfectly captures that feeling of discomfort and anxiety one feels in crowded places, wishing one could just be alone. However, the song also acknowledges the possibility of finding someone who understands that feeling and embracing solitude together.

The band, consisting of Alan Benjamin Thomas and Steven Rutherford, has garnered over 150 million streams and sold-out shows globally, with their self-sustaining, DIY aesthetic and deep connection with their fans. They have supported notable artists such as Bloc Party, COIN, and The Aces and headlining 15,000+ capacity venues in Asia.

Despite their international success, Joan’s music still exudes warmth and a sense of community from their roots in Little Rock, Arkansas. Their interaction with fans through their successful Patreon page and free meet & greets at every show highlight their dedication to their audience.

With the release of “Loner” and their debut album “superglue” set for April 19th, Joan’s 2023 promises to be their biggest year yet with worldwide tours and festival appearances. “Loner” is the perfect song for anyone who values the beauty and power of solitude.
