Alongside Anna Sweeney and Kung Fu Academy, Glasgow up-and-comers Junebug return to their home town for the second last leg of their autumn tour.
Junebug – an acoustic/rock quintet, reminiscent of Bombay Bicycle Club and Stereophonics, are starting to make waves in the Glasgow indie scene. The Music Brewery are going to be down at Nice ‘N’ Sleazy’s this coming Saturday 25th October to see them strut their stuff and we’re going to convince you why you should be joining us.
Fresh off the back of gigs in Inverness and Edinburgh, Junebug will be playing tracks from their new EP The Singles and hopefully some classics from The Chase for the hardcore fans amongst the audience.
As a short teaser we’re going to give you our view on Junebug’s latest single ‘Lines’.
Mellow, catchy and full of lamenting vocals ‘Lines‘ is a powerful tune that starts slow but builds up exponentially. The female vocals are strong and emotive. The track builds up before the chorus with furious acoustic riffs accompanied by a catchy vocal hook.
Not an overly tight song but it doesn’t need to be – it’s the raw, edginess that makes the tune stand out from Junebug’s other tracks. The bass keeps the beat expertly and the layered guitars create a nice overtone dominating the sound-scape.
Like what you hear? Then get yourself down on Saturday night to drink in this marvellous young band with us. We’ll be there reviewing and interviewing, as we do, so you can read it all here next week!
You can get tickets for the gig here and find out more about Junebug all over the internet!
