JUNE JONES 'Leafcutter' LP
A prolific artist and singular voice in the world of Australian music, June Jones is releasing her sophomore album, Leafcutter, on 19 February 2021. Her solo debut, 2019’s Diana, received 3RRR Album of the Week and led to a national tour with Seeker Lover Keeper as well as shows with international acts Cate Le Bon, Hand Habits, and Colin Self. Despite this being Jones’s first self-produced record, Leafcutter feels in many ways like a logical sequel to her previous releases, which include two albums with Two Steps on the Water, the self-proclaimed “emotion punk” band she fronted from 2014 to 2018. Like her past albums, Leafcutter is a collection of songs exploring different aspects of her experience as “a deeply emotional trans woman, a lesbian with ADHD,” and her signature vocals – dynamic in their ability to move between syrupy cool and impassioned exclamation – are present as ever at the forefront of this record.
