Joanna Gruesome, “Jerome (Liar)”

Post Author:

It’s been almost a year since the release of Joanna Gruesome’s debut LP Weird Sister. The Welsh quintet has kept busy with side projects and touring, but have only released one song since Weird Sister, a heartbreaking cover of Galaxie 500’s “Tugboat“.

All that changes today with the release of the first single from a split with Bristol’s Trust Fund, titled “Jerome (Liar)”. The tune is less of a pulverizing sugar assault (a “Sugarcrush” if you will) than many of the tracks on Weird Sister, but anyone who has listened to the band knows to expect, well, Secret Surprises in each track. Joanna Gruesome kept us waiting for good reason, and “Jerome (Liar)” shows us exactly Why We Are Still In Love With them.

The Trust Fund/Joanna Gruesome GOLD VINYL 7″ drops August 21 in the UK through JG’s Reeks of Effort and August 22 in the US through HHBTM.
