Track: S.F. Johnson Shares Gorgeous New Single ‘The Goo’ Ahead Of Upcoming New Album

A vibrant blend of bright, chorus tinted guitar lines, vibrant synths, S.F. Johnson’s new single ‘The Goo’ captures a gorgeous melancholic tone that it’s hard not to fall in love with.

Whimsical, emotive and beautiful thought out with intertwining guitar and synth lines, plucky bass and punching drums ‘The Goo’ captures the same beautiful retro personality and heartfelt tone as across the catalogues of Westerman and Close Talker. Lyrically the track treads through a romanticised, poetic description as the boxy, understated lead vocals glide above the sparkling backing.

Speaking about the single, he says: “The Goo is about the relationship with self. It was the last track I wrote for the album when I was still living in Tokyo. At the time I was trying to be more mindful and reflective, stealing moments out of the day whenever I felt consumed. The roof of my old place was perfect for that, and is where I got the idea for the song. It’s mulling things over, the fear, the uncertainty, and eventually realising that sometimes you’ve just got to help yourself.

At this point I’d been living in Japan for 4 years and felt my time there slipping away, I was anxious about moving home post Covid – so I wanted to try and embrace what was left in mind and song.

Living in London makes it even harder to find these little moments of peace. Sometimes I stick this track on and remind myself of how important it is to do this. Take myself back to that rooftop, when I’m drowning in the goo

A pretty, breezy, delicate and overall warming effort from S.F. Johnson, ‘The Goo’ gives an exciting taste of what to expect across the upcoming album.
