JUNKSTAR's new single KICKING K (Genepool/Universal) charted at NUMBER 2 in Amazon's New Download Releases in September 2011.
Here is the video for the single, directed by Jake Bryan-Amaning.
The band have just returned from an Italian Tour, to some great press for the single, and two endorsements from ROLAND and ROTOSOUND.
SINGLE PRESS BLURBS: 'Cool and using some Beach Boys-esque harmonies to full effect!' Richard Archer (Hard-Fi) 'Kicking K kept me bouncing along from beginning to end, what an excellent hit!' Leslie J. Bialik (Rolling Stone) 'The London five-piece have released an infectious track in an attempt to get the nation singing along to their brilliant choruses.' Daisy Boorman (DIY Magazine) 'If The Killers had one more cappuccino in the morning they may well write a barnstormer like this.' Ed Spencer -- (ARTROCKER)
Lead track KICKING K is a throbbing hook-fest of a song, and is backed up by the more brooding pop of GIRLS LIKE HIM. The third track on the single was written for BBC 2 Comedy IDEAL (series 7) - and sees the band mashing up an oddly satisfying mix of MIA & The Fall. The single was produced by Jess Corcoran (Popinjays, Senseless Things, Mega City 4) and mastered at WIRED mastering studios.
