Today is a good day. Why? Because we’re treated to the latest release from Durham-native indie/rock/power-pop aficionado Trunky Juno. The 5-track EP is a massive slab of catchy tunes, awesome lyrics, and guitar-laden riffs reminiscent of the better side of ’90s rock. Think Fountains of Wayne, Weezer, Matthew Sweet, the Posies, and you’re just part of the way there.

Trunky Juno

The EP clocks in at a smidge over 15 minutes, with an average of 3 minutes per tune. Trunky has given us a masterclass in songwriting and how to ‘trim the fat’ to create smash-and-grab earworms that will leave you energized and wanting to hit the repeat button. While all the tunes offer something different and take you on the kind of musical journey you may not have realised you’ve been missing, initial stand-out tracks are ‘Other Side Of Nothing’ and ‘Link in Bio.’

In his own words, ‘… the zany universe of Trunky Juno is just beginning its glorious expansion,’ and we’re only too happy to be along for the ride and to witness the distinctive musicianship that Trunky Juno brings to the forefront of the alternative music scene.
