Exclusive Track Premiere: The Love Junkies – “I Had A Party Once”
Western Australia has a reputation for providing world-beating rock’n’roll to the masses and that tradition is currently being upheld by grunged-up indie rockers The Love Junkies, who have turned their wild live shows, loud/soft dynamic and tenacious lust for touring into the perfect three-headed musical export.
Having hit the road last month across the US, the band smashed their way through a string of shows at the famous South By Southwest festival and found their way onto over 40 college radio stations in the process.
This month they’re back with a new single produced by local legend Dave Parkin (Karnivool, Tired Lion) called “I Had Party Once”, which showcases the first taste of a new album that’s sure to catapult them even further into earning the praise of international music nerds pounding at their keyboards. It’s packed with more melody than ever before, laid-back yet scream-riddled, feels like it makes a pit stop in a Hawaii around 1.14, and recalls some of the better work of legends like Born Ruffians, Custard and Pixies. In summary, it needs to be in your earholes, ASAP, so you can practise your sing-a-longs for their upcoming Nobody tour.
