“Burn” was the debut single of London-based Portuguese singer Mai Kino, and it was a powerful introduction. For her second release, “June,” Mai strips things down for a beautiful, bare-boned song that lets her¬†voice and songwriting take center stage.¬†“June is about red skies and coming to terms with the impermanence of things,” she explains. With June over and fall slowly creeping up, the song is a bittersweet reminder of the impending end.
