Hot on the heels of the group's big win, Junk Drawer deliver their explosive psych single 'Temporary Day'
Junk Drawer is the first DIY act to ever win the Northern Ireland Music Prize, an award that aims to recognise the wealth of great music from Northern Ireland. The band incorporates the imprint of Krautrock and psychedelia to form their idiosyncratic brand of indie music. Comprising four multi-instrumentalists, they’ve garnered fans from all over the musical spectrum. As testament to their widespread appeal, they've supported Built To Spill, Grandaddy & Mclusky.
This forthcoming Spring sees the release of Junk Drawer’s debut LP, Ready For The House. Across eight tracks, the band filters diverse influences to deliver a yearning, sardonic exploration of classic themes: epilepsy, anxiety, depression, social conscience and identity.
‘Temporary Day’ is the band’s first experiment with synth-led composition, and layered live & electronic rhythms, written unthinkingly instinctively in the studio. It’s heavily influenced by experimental 70s German rock, featuring drones and an expulsive anti-solo. Its video was produced in Donegal by Robert Mulhern, and playfully satirises modern vlogger culture.
