London-born artist Joe Winter releases new single and reflects on the complexity of origins, relationships and personal emotions.
Joe explains: “Laughing for the West is a lament on the experience of being a citizen of ‘the west’, as well as an individual navigating their own emotional landscape. The song is about complicity. You’re an emotional landscape within a political one. You have interpersonal relationships — romantic, sexual, familial, and platonic — that feel entirely human and unpolitical. Yet you feel like your origin’s contentious past and present bleed into your consciousness in a way that’s hard to distill.”
