Band: SUN JUNKIES
Who: Four-piece outfit from Brantford, Ontario that formed in 2018. Cutting their teeth in the Southern Ontario indie scene, as well as touring the USA and Canada’s east coasts, the four best friends have had plenty of time to hone their songwriting abilities.
New album: PARACHUTING
“Although it’s mainly about time, Parachuting has many other recurring themes and deals with topics like the soul crushing monotony of the 40 hour work week, as well as the coping mechanisms and anxiety that come with such a mundane reality. Featuring an orchestral arrangement of pianos, violins and horns juxtaposed with growling feedback and distorted guitars, these songs will (hopefully) make you feel like you’re unreasonably sad at the most debaucherous party you’ve ever been to.
TUTV: Holy smoke! Wanna go berserk? Here’s the fuel to do it. Sun Junkies rock their tails off and bulldoze their way through 15 kick-ass punk slams. No brakes, no breaks, no mistakes. These 4 Canadians are adrenalized noiseniks producing tons of hurly-burly hullabaloo.
They storm fast-forward with screeching guitars, boisterous drumming and clamorous chanting. Like a Formula One race car in overdrive. Fast and furious, crushing their demons along the whirlwind way. All cylinders and burners on. Think Green Day, Blink 182, and Fall Out Boy in their reckless primes. They end Parachuting out of breath. So will you. Kamikaze rock is what these junkies are about. Hail hail.
Ignore reality for 50 minutes and go nuts. .
