SONG PICK: JØUR – American Nightmare
“What if I can’t wake up from this American Dream?” For JØUR, singer/songwriter from Minnesota, the life she is supposed to strive for turns out be a trap. But as the music builds from a chilling pop track to a big finale, it becomes clear that we all might be stuck in this nightmare-turned-dream, for obvious reasons. The music reflects this state of conflict: the familiarity of an 80s pop tune is broken by the mounting state of panic in JØUR’s vocals.
