Portfolio

Press release for a Synthpop single

A satisfyingly saucy slice of synthpop sounds embrace us on the brand new single from The Rude Awakening. This is Johnny and Bridget’s first full release of 2020 and they bound back with a sensational pop song. Squeal is a bouncy, upbeat song without any rude words! Safe for all radio shows.

To the reader

I hope to write from me to you words of joy and laughter too. Words of sorrow words of love, rhymes and times fit hand in glove. Please dear reader let me flow and through these words you might get to know a little, or lots, I’m plain to see. My words are a part of me.
