"in the afternoon" is the third single Salvat has released since his 2016 debut album Night Swim, after last year's "modern anxiety" and "alone".

He says of the new release, ""In the afternoon" is a simple song. It was a crush, a bit of fantasy happening in my head. That kind where it feels so good to think about them but kind of hurts at the same time."

The new single also arrives with a second track titled "playground love".

Josef Salvat's "in the afternoon" and "playground love" singles are both out now. He plays a sold-out show at London's Moth Club on 5 February.
