The latest export from New Zealand is coming to us by way of Auckland band Miss June.
Described as “some unholy union between Sonic Youth and Le Tigre,” the four piece harness jagged, noisy guitars filtered through the unrivalled stage presence of front-person Annabel Liddel, guitarist Jun Park, bass player Chris Marshall and drummer Tom Leggett.
Their newest single “Best Girl” they note, “is an anthem for anyone who has been misled from birth, into battle for a spot that doesn’t exist”.
Miss June have recently signed to NYC’s Frenchkiss Records and on June 10 the label will release a double a-side 7” consisting of “Best Girl” and the previously released “Twitch”.
The band have built a reputation for fierce, formidable and head-spinning live shows which have caught the attention of acts like The Foo Fighters, Shellac, Wolf Alice, Idles and Die! Die! Die!, who have all eagerly harnessed their support on stage. Next month will see them bring this party to UK and US for shows in London, New York City and Los Angeles.
