Jun Parker released a new track ‘Embracement’
Jun Parker Releases “Embracement,” His Debut Australian Neo City Pop Song.
Jun Parker announced the immediate release of his debut song, “Embracement,” along with a music video, on all major online streaming music services.
In his eagerly awaited debut album, Jun blends elements of Japanese City Pop with smooth and funky sounds from the 1970s, cultivating the result in the Australian outback with a dash of soaring melancholy. The song “Embracement,” which has Japanese-language lyrics, is the first debut product of this. He views #FunkyNostalgia as a central theme in his music, which he thinks can be unlocked in everyone—possibly even more so through learning a foreign language.
Jun examines the concepts of memories, dreams, the past, present, and love in the song “Embracement.” By using the image of a woman sporting a blue scarf, he elevates these themes to a new level. But given that winter was over, why would she do that? As the music heightens the aural imaginative experience, Jun invites the listener to ask and answer this question for himself or herself through the intonation and delivery of his voice.
Jun traveled to Australia many years ago with a sizable collection of Japanese City Pop CDs. Now a long-time resident of South West Victoria, Australia, Jun began his musical career in the middle of last year with the help of other local musicians, showcasing his distinctive Australian Neo City Pop sound. From playing in rural pubs in Australia, his live performances have been well received in hip seaside bars in Melbourne, well-liked wineries in the region, and will be a featured performer for Melbourne City’s On the Road Again program in the Melbourne CBD in March 2022.
He has contributed an original song written especially for the Melbourne Japanese Summer Festival 2022 thanks to his exceptional songwriting abilities. Jun’s musical journey takes him from Australia to Japan in April 2022. Since then, he has participated in a number of lucrative live performances throughout Japan, including at the iconic Shimokitazawa LOFT. He is coming back to Australia for more live performances as he prepares for an album release later this year after performing at music festivals and on numerous Japanese radio shows.
