Indie maverick Trunky Juno has returned with a new single release, ‘Death Metal Music’.
It is his second single of the year, following June’s ‘Oxford English Dictionary’, and comes after the 2021 EP, ‘Good Dog’ – Dork’s review described the 4-track project as a collection of, “playful tunes bathing irresistibly catchy pop hooks in a pool of distorted indie production”.
Co-produced by Eduardo De La Paz (The Big Moon, Walt Disco, Drug Store Romeos), the new track ruminates on the inevitability of aging. ‘Death Metal Music’ arrived today, October 27th, via Silent Kid Records. It is a cut from an upcoming project, more on which will be revealed in coming months.
“Welcome to the Trunky Goth Phase,” the Durham-based artist has declared. “Grab some makeup, head to the cemetery, and snap yourself a new profile pic. For some people it’s 20, for others it might be 50, and for some people, it might never happen, but there’s generally an age at which people decide everything just sounds like Death Metal Music to them now. It’s that feeling of, ‘I don’t get this, it sucks’. Do I get it? Who knows, but it sure is fun to Goth up and play some noisy guitar music.”
