Bio

Multiple Australian tours, performances at SXSW, Canadian Music week, Music Matters in Singapore, shows in Hanoi and a five week tour of the USA with a 15 seater van and a George Foreman grill. After cramming all this into the last three years, WAMi Award winners The Love Junkies decided to lay low and get some rest. Taking six months off from performing in the second half of 2016, it wasn’t long before they got the itch to get back in the rehearsal room and start making music together again. Since the start of 2017 they’ve been in the studio working on new material and have re-emerged on the live front with performances including the inaugural City Limits Festival in Perth, sharing the stage with Gyroscope, Jebediah and Alex Lahey, and as main support for Spiderbait at their Metropolis Perth show, fulfilling a long time bucket list item for the band.

Phwoar, this is a track and a half! (Ironically, it's about half the length of most tracks.)

This song's got a split personality. Here I was thinking it was a bright, '90s inspired power-pop tune and then BOOM! It erupts into a maelstrom of punk rock. Needless to say this rocks!
