"The band JUNK plays its own original music made first to satisfy the musicians that make it. We blend styles to make us feel good when we listen to it." Dirty D / JUNK

All four tracks deliver a deeply personal feeling which can be easily appreciated. It's safe to say that Noon's lyrics come from the heart, and his voice is the conduit that delivers his touching messages.
"Thank you for listening and I hope you like my songs! You can expect lyric heavy, acoustic guitar-based music that is definitely indie-folk, but vocally I probably sound more like Matt Berninger or Eddie Vedder than the more folky artists of the genre, albeit with an Irish accent. Fans of Frightened Rabbit might also like my music, as they are a huge influence on me." Dylan Goff
The EP is an homage to their late friend Jeff Hewitt, who sadly left this world too soon. "He was a true artist who constantly pushed himself. Jeff was a champion of our city, music, community, arts, and us. We miss him and wrote The Antonym to honor him.", Spirit Gun explains.
The EP consists of seven tracks, approximately a 26-minute voyage by virtue of synth-wavy, part-experimental, part-roots-rock n’ roll exposition. However, when ordering it on Bandcamp, the album also includes a bonus track, “Bizarre Love Triangle”- a New Order cover. A nice “crescendo” to the overall experience.
"Feel The Love" is a song that seeks to reinvigorate that spark and to remind of all those reasons that brought the lovers together in the first place. Built as a duet, the single shines with wonderful vocals, caressing synths, and gentle percussion that slowly makes way to a dancy groove that invites to get up and dance.
Kat Delitto (Lead guitar), Krista Marie Setera (ukulele, vocals), Ben Bonadies (Bass) and Matt Wilson (Drums) came together musically to create songs that are both technically challenging and full of emotion. Lyrics are deeply personal, spanning from romantic disasters to emotional struggles and an inside rage that seems to only dissipate thanks to the high-gained riffs and superb drum playing.
Mental health is important, and 7000apart know that. The duo is making music that originates in dark places, but always moving forward and hoping it will be better. Hope alone won't cut it, you have to put in the work - and these two are doing exactly that.
