"(Green Peppers) A weird and charming new track that sums up what's exciting about Goon's pop-tinged grunge...Killer debut EP..."- 
 
The FADER
 
 

Today, Los Angeles experimental alt-rockers Goon have announced additional shows for SXSW including FADER Sessions at Hotel Van Zandt. Show links and full tour schedule below.

Last week, Goon released their striking new single "Cammie at Night," which is available now on all digital platforms and NPR's 100 Artists To Watch At SXSW playlist. 

"Cammie at Night" explores the sensitive subject of sexuality repressed by religion and the lingering affect it has on adolescents and their sexual relationships and developing sexual identity.

Singer-songwriter Kenny Becker states:

"I wrote this song as an expression of sexuality through a sort of pure-human carnal lens. Specifically, sexuality repressed by Christianity and the deep desire to break out of that repression. I don't mean to say this is true of all Christians, but my personal experience of having my sexuality dictated to me by church leaders definitely did more harm than good. Entirely un-restrained sexual urges obviously aren't healthy either, but this song is just a meditation on the fact that my deepest human desire was so quickly locked up and considered something to be ashamed of, at such a formative age. There was just too much shame. And I was so curious for a very long time. Turns out, the stigma and shame still linger."

"Cammie at Night" was recorded by Gardens & Villa's Chris Lynch and Adam Rasmussen, mixed by Lewis Pesacov (FIDLAR, Best Coast, Fool's Gold) and mastered by Daniel Brouns.

The track will be featured on Goon's debut album out later this year.
