Exclusive Single Premiere: Joe Mungovan “Soaking Up The Sunshine” (2021)

Joe Mungovan

South-Coast indie-music singer/songwriter Joe Mungovan continues with his run of feel-good tunes oozing summer-vibes with “Soaking Up The Sunshine”, his latest single which is about to drop. We are thrilled today to have the premiere of this sun-soaked delight ahead of its release on Wednesday.

“Soaking Up The Sunshine” follows on from “Lemon + Lime” which we premiered back in February.  Mungovan has the knack for recording music which can’t help but comfort and take the listener to their happy place.

From the opening bars, this track has me on board with the chilled vibes. Mungovan’s voice has a warm lilting embrace, the chorus is catchy as, and it features some killer trumpet. I expect fans of Dope Lemon will find plenty to love with this one.

Mungovan writes of the background to the track, ‘Soaking Up The Sunshine’ is about a classic Australian road trip; travelling up and down the coastline, soaking up the rays during the day and drinking wine around a fire at night. Unfortunately, this particular trip was put to an end early due to the Covid situation getting quite serious half way through. The girl I was travelling with had to fly back to Germany before the borders closed. While writing this track I was reminiscing on the good times that we spent together before everything was turned upside down.”

The track was recorded in a home studio, near his hometown of Kiama, on the NSW south coast.

“Soaking Up The Sunshine” will be released on Wednesday, 19th May.
