Miss June – Anomaly

Post-punk, no-wave and rock are not the first things I think about regarding New Zealand. Still, Auckland four-piece Miss June have got it all. Listening to their music, one can imagine why they’ve once been described as ‘some unholy union between Sonic Youth and Le Tigre’.

Frontwoman Annabel Liddell, guitarist Jun Park, bass player Chris Marshall and drummer Tom Leggett create a blistering, reckless sound. Tomorrow, 6 September, Miss June release their debut album Bad Luck Party. It contains 11 tracks, with standard ingredients like noisy guitars, melodic hooks and overdriven riffs.

Two of the album’s songs, Best Girl and Enemies, have been released before. Third teaser Anomaly is out now as well. “I have an incredible ability to attract individuals that are as flawed as I am”, singer Annabel says. “It’s made my life chaotic and beautiful. This song is about a girl. A girl I will never understand. A girl that’s a gun, a burning sun and an anomaly to me.”
