Junk Drawer have been creating unruly blasts of sonic fury since 2016 but the Belfast quartet are releasing their debut album Ready for the House this coming Friday (April 24th) via Art For Blind.
Ahead of the album’s arrival comes new single, and the album’s opening salvo, ‘What I’ve Learned / What I’m Learning’. Mixing it up with brush strokes of psych, post-punk, 90s indie, shoegaze, psych and post-punk Junk Drawer deliver a sprawling 7 minutes of relentless, frenzied delirium. Opening with a meandering array of slowburning guitars and riffs that melt the heart before subtly drifting away as rampaging rhythm, caustic guitar lines and barrage of relentless roar of searing riffs emerge through a swell of distortion, feedback and psychedelic drones. It is a raw and caustic thriller, an unrelenting electrifying juggernaut of a jam that screeches through serrated layers of sonic energy, squealing distortion and spiraling fuzz. As was previously stated, this is the album opener, and oh my, does this get you in the humour for the album. Yes sir.
