Arkansas-based alt-pop duo joan, consisting of Alan Benjamin Thomas and Steven Rutherford, released a new song “so done” from their upcoming EP “bye.” "So Done" is a punchy, guitar-laden kiss-off to a relationship gone sour. Alongside the track, joan has shared an accompanying video in which Alan from the band gets entangled by an ever-growing telephone wire during a break-up. "so done" is from "bye," one of two upcoming EPs (hi & bye) due for release in December via Photo Finish Records, while hi lands a month earlier. joan (Alan Benjamin Thomas and Steven Rutherford) have spent the past few years building their musical empire, single by single, tour date by tour date, with the past two years being landmarks for them; their debut EP, 2019’s "portra," and last year’s EP cloudy have been streamed well over 90 million times, with over a million listeners a month across streaming platforms. The guys spent much of 2019 on the road with major US and international tours supporting the likes of The Aces, COIN, Bloc Party and Jeremy Zucker, as well as playing to fans across Asia with headline shows and festivals in the Philippines, Thailand, Singapore, and Hong Kong. Early 2020 saw them playing to sold-out crowds across the US on their first headline tour, including having to add additional shows in LA to accommodate ticket demand.
