Highly acclaimed American songwriter Joan As Police Woman returns to Europe performing key songs from throughout her career alongside new music from her forthcoming album. 

Joan As Police Woman

American musician and singer-songwriter Joan As Police Woman has released her new single ‘Long For Ruin’. The first taste of her forthcoming new album ‘Lemons, Limes & Orchids’.

Sobering and quietly confrontational, ‘Long For Ruin’ finds Joan As Police Woman in a state of existential lament. Questioning and reflecting on the sorrowful state of the world at present, but more so on the role humans play as active agents in society’s ongoing decay and devastation.

Roaring with emphatic urgency and concern, underpinning the song’s mode of apprehension and hopelessness is a bed of cinematic instrumentation and striking production. A scintillating hybrid of indie rock and alternative soul featuring distorted electric guitar chords and shuffling percussion, ‘Long For Ruin’ comfortably sits in a universe that is singularly Joan’s. All of which is further brought to life by Joan’s affecting vocal performance which evokes an air of contemplation and melancholy.
