A blend of male and female vocals a la The Vaselines is hitting our playlists next week as JUNK release their new ‘Liquorice E.P.’ following last summer’s début ‘Car E.P.’
Available to buy nationwide from Monday 4 May it will be the band’s second release on Leeds label CHUD Records and will be available on cassette and digital download. Promising the lo-fi charm of their debut combined with the refinement like that of wine, improving with age, the four track E.P. continues to deliver on high-energy pop songs, bitter-sweet and full of the heady vocals of Estella Adeyeri and Sam Coates, with Danny Barton manning the drums and recording process.
JUNK will be gracing the Duchess to launch their new collection of songs on Friday 1 May, joined by the captivating Psycle and Worm as well as selling advance copies on cassette at this hometown show. The launch comes just before a busy summer for the band, who have been confirmed for Indietracks and Sounds from the Other City festivals as well as touring dates in London and Leeds.
Ferg from CHUD Records commented on the release: “We’re thrilled to be working with JUNK. again on this release. ‘Car E.P.’ was both the first release for us and for JUNK. so it’s really great to see how far they’ve come in the past year."
The launch will see JUNK joined by the hypnotic beats of psychedelic instrumentalists Psycle. Known to screech, shout and laugh Psycle have been referred to as "Hippy-trippy flute-welding bumblebee band" by BBC York’s Jericho Keys, bringing their hypnotic psych rock to the night’s ventures. Worm are set to complete the night’s line-up, their grunge-pop stylings sounding like the lovechild of Nirvana and Sonic Youth.
JUNK’s EP launch, featuring Psycle and Worm will be gracing your ears at 7.30pm on Friday 1 May at the Duchess. Tickets are available on the door for £5.
