Fawns of Love Reveal New Version of “Someday” Recorded and Mixed by Cocteau Twins’ Robin Guthrie

Hearing new music after a declaration of fandom is an exciting moment. For us at Grimy Goods, that moment has arrived in the form of a double-sided single from Fawns of Love, a Bakerfield husband/wife duo.
