MP3 At 3PM: Shannon McArdle

Sometimes love can feel like a prison. MAGNET fave Shannon McArdle explores that feeling in her new single, “Warden,” off Fear The Dream Of Axes (Bar/None). She describes the dynamic between lover and loved as such: “My warden seems to hold the key to the prisoner’s heart. The prisoner has conflicting emotions of wanting to be freed and wanting to be wanted and kept by the warden.” Download McArdle’s folksy, romantic meditations below.
