Dream rock four piece junodream release the profoundly atmospheric new single ‘Kitchen Sink Drama’, the third offering from their upcoming debut album Pools of Colour, due 26th January via AWAL Recordings – stream here.
Steadily building through a moody chord progression before bursting out into a harsh yet enthralling refrain, ‘Kitchen Sink Drama’ shows a desperate window into an abusive and toxic relationship. Talking about the meaning behind the track, singer Ed Vyvyan comments by saying:
“Many of us have been in this situation and it feels like the walls are closing in from every direction. But very, very slowly. It’s excruciating for a long period of time, and then it just boils over. You can have these earth shatteringly horrible arguments in the most mundane of places. Your bedroom, the park, your kitchen. This song is an expression of that anger and sadness, wrapped in a junodream bow.”
Sharing a deep connection that’s the result of being best friends for a decade, alongside a DIY formula that’s at the heart of everything they do, junodream are building a captivating world within their tight community of fans and collaborators. In the five years since their inception, they’ve amassed over 23 million collective streams on DSPs, forging blistering and immersive live performances including a rapturous set at this year’s The Great Escape Festival in Brighton.
Lined 10 tracks deep, the band’s debut album Pools of Colour is about coming to terms with insignificance. The deeply immersive dream-rock LP asks important questions, delving into the more insidious and disconnected parts of modernity and the human condition, presenting a band more interested in a cohesive, egoless whole than the perspective of four separate members. In sacrificing the desires of the self, they say, your creative collaboration becomes more fruitful, and the world around you more colourful.
The band’s headline tour takes place early next year, making stops in Dublin, Glasgow, Nottingham, Manchester, Brighton, London and more throughout February 2024. Tickets are on sale now here
