The single is the first instalment of a two-part story.

New Zealand-born, Melbourne-based emerging pop talent Joanna Jones has unveiled her latest single, ‘Disaster’. The first instalment of a two-part offering, the single reflects on the emotional aftermath of a breakup.

Set against a backdrop of swirling synth, ‘Disaster’ surveys the spectrum of thoughts and feelings associated with ending a relationship. Love songs often explore unrequited feelings and being left by someone you love, but with her new single, Jones looks at the other side of the story.

Sometimes, despite the love that’s there, two people can’t make it work. ‘Disaster’ details the complexities that come with recognising a relationship has reached its end and the fear, hurt and blame that comes with walking away from someone you care about.

The second part of this narrative will come in the form of a follow-up single titled ‘Step Outside’, which is due for release next month.

In the meantime, listen to ‘Disaster’ below.
