The weather’s been amazingly good over here, so to complement the clement climes, there has been a lot of cheery, sunny sounds on the go.
One perfect example of this approach are York trio JUNK., who are anything but what their self-deprecating name would suggest. Rather they specialize in charming, extremely catchy and glorious lo-fi indie pop songs, which litter their debut EP, Car. Clocking in at around the three minute mark, Junk. create short and sweet darts of harmonising happiness; a jangly lo-fi racket coated with fuzz but the pop sensibilities are there for everyone to hear. Their glorious lo-fi indie pop is made exponentially more loveable by the stunning the blend of male/ female vocals, delivered with expert precession, they could warm the of the most miserable of hearts. That’s more or less the treats that await you on their wonderful four-track EP of ‘Matches’, ‘Pictures’, ‘Polystyrene’ and ‘Car’ which has a fine succession of ‘bap bap ba da da da’s’ that you will be singing away for the rest of the summer.
