Back In May I shared some news about Auckland based band Miss June signing to the legendary indie label Frenchkiss. After a 7″ release via the label in May, the band is now prepping to release a new LP entitled Bad Luck Party on September 10th (pre-order here). Prior to that release, Miss June just dropped this blazing new single called “Enemies”. Honestly, I’m not sure I can remember a song recently that rocks and melts faces as much as this one. It’s under 3 minutes long and doesn’t let up in its intensity for one second.
Frenchkiss Records is a longtime favorite label of ours and they seem to have found another great unknown band with the signing of Auckland based band Miss June. Celebrating the new signing, the band are dropping a video for this new single “Best Girl” which can be found below. Anyone with an open ear will immediately be drawn to the bands large amount of energy and power thrown into their music. It’s as if Garbage had more of a rocking sound like Screaming Females. Dig it.
Miss June will release this song on a 7″ vinyl release coming on June 10th via Frenchkiss Records.
As if you thought I’d let Nathan have all the fun with this SXSW interview game, you thought wrong! It’s time for me to start sharing some interviews myself and I’m starting today with one from Auckland based band Swallow the Rat. These guys were kind enough to answer or SXSW band questions and you can find their responses after the jump.
