NSW South Coast singer-songwriter Joe Mungovan returns today with his fresh Summery tune ‘Like That’. It follows on from singles ‘You + Me’, ‘Lemon + Lime’, ‘Soaking Up The Sunshine’ and ‘Give Me Your Love’ which all feature on his long awaited debut album ‘A Flower In The Weeds’.
Produced by Joe Mungovan at a picturesque studio in Kangaroo Valley, ‘Like That’ stays true to Joe’s indie rock roots but is still laden with infectious pop vibes and melodies. The new single and debut album were mixed by ARIA Award winning producer/engineer Tim Carr (Matt Corby, Julia Stone) and mastered by long term collaborator Joe Carra (Courtney Barnett, The Teskey Brothers).
“Like That’ is about a road-trip I went on before Covid hit. A girl I had met in Germany flew to Australia to see me and we travelled up and down the coast in my van. We were out in the bush for a week and came back into reception to the news that the German borders were closing. We fanged it back to Sydney Airport to get her on a flight home in time.” Joe Mungovan
Throughout his career, Joe Mungovan has consistently constructed melodies that expand from traditional pop and rock songwriting structures. His songs have been played across Triple j, Double j and community radio, video support across Rage and MTV and press praise in Rolling Stone, Pilerats, Music Feeds, Au Review, The Music to name a few. Mungovan’s songwriting has also seen him nominated for an APRA Award and Golden Guitar Award in 2021, and a Finalist in the International Songwriting Competition in 2020.
In what could be one of the funniest videos this year, Mungovan channels his inner actor creating different personalities that rival videos by Polish Club, Dune Rats or DZ Deathrays.
