Release Date: Out Now
Operating under the stage name iiola, Shannon Saunders is back with new release ‘Chewing Gum’ on her own Lovejoy Records label and I’m already sold on the faded glamour of the artwork alone. Fortunately, the woozy alt-pop is equally enticing with the Lana Del Rey vibe of the melodies blending with a more direct vocal style that is akin to Kimbra or Dua Lipa. “Bodies in lust, we drink too much, our lips don’t touch, this is twisted but it’s fun” sings iiola with the aplomb and confidence of an artist at a more advanced stage of her career so we can allow ourselves to expect bigger and better things to come from this talented lady.
