Juno Dunes – “Dissolve”


“Dissolve” is a serenely caressing, jangly gem of a track from New Orleans-based artist Juno Dunes. Their “like slacker rock for yachts” description is apt, conjuring a breezy, weightless charm in its dreamy guitar tones and carefree lyrical charm — “we can just dissolve,” giving into emotion with a heartfelt enthrallment. The thematic emphasis compels in writing as a “ballad to ourselves, and the things we leave behind so we can continue to grow,” per the artist.

The initial “when I met you, I was chasing my tail,” retrospection guides into a “trying to just enjoy the ride,” ethos, meshing well with the balmy guitar work. “I feel like we met in a past life,” the smitten vocals continue, culminating in the title-touting warmness. “Dissolve” touts a blissful, jangly charm that’s easy to fall comfortably into.

This and other tracks featured this month can be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of November 2023’ Spotify playlist.
