Im Having Fun Now Album Art

Jenny Lewis and Johnny Rice (not as catchy) have released the first taste from their upcoming debut as Jenny & Johnny. “Scissor Runner” is pure melodic power pop with boy-girl harmonies. While their website promises some darker sounds on We’re Having Fun Now (maybe that comes with all the ouroboros they use in their artwork), but you don’t find that on “Scissor Runner,” besides the hints at melancholy and heartbreak that come with most classic power pop. And this track does feel like it could have been recorded any time in the last 30 years — it wouldn’t feel out of place on ’70s AM radio.
