Saff Juno has an incredible ability to cut through the stress and noise of modern life and transport the listener to a little audio oasis wherever you choose to experience her music. 5 O’Clock Sun is another dreamy triumph for the Devon based indie singer/songwriter.

The track, released in late 2023, weaves together delicate storytelling of that ‘calm after the storm’ feeling after leaving a difficult relationship with elements of nature to create a song that sounds the way a cosy blanket feels. Perfect for a bleak winter day.

Fairy-esque visuals help build a sort of magical aura that has a hint of the psychedelic about it which is also reflected in the simple but catchy guitar parts.

Lines like ‘I won’t let me down’ carry a poignant message of self-love and healing and are delivered with a warmth that radiates through not only this track but her other recent releases as Saff builds up towards an EP release in the near future.

After performing to a sold-out crowd at the Exeter Phoenix’s ‘South West Showcase’ with BBC Introducing in the South West the sky’s the limit for Saff Juno in 2024.

5 O’Clock Sun is available on all major streaming platforms.
