The creative mind of Durham’s own, Trunky Juno, has developed a style drenched in the joyous, elastic sound of breezy, British indie-pop. He has returned to the scene with new material in this style, with his new single ‘Oxford English Dictionary‘ recently released on the 29th of June.
This artist is actively reinventing our perception of classic indie-pop with his playful, entertaining take on the genre. Through his imaginative and witty lyricism, it’s clear he doesn’t take his artistry too seriously, which is a refreshing notion in today’s climate.
Having received support from the likes of BBC Introducing and BBC Radio 1’s Jack Saunders, Trunky Juno is set to continue his campaign in creating catchy alt-pop music for the masses in the year to come.
I still find it difficult to spell Mississippi, but I did manage to write a fun song. It’s a hooky Alt-Pop that will confidently power walk you straight back to the Trunky Superstore for more Trunky.Trunky Juno
To summarise, ‘Oxford English Dictionary‘ is about going above and beyond to support the people you care about most. He speaks in jest, naming the metaphorical things he would do to get them to love him, claiming to have ‘Nothing better to do’ but to be their ‘Oxford English Dictionary on the shelf’. Despite the fact that things may inevitably change, he will still go to such lengths to show his affection.
Without a doubt, Trunky’s sound appears to be heavily influenced by fellow indie personality Mac DeMarco. They share similarities in their casual yet quirky approach to music, alongside their frequent use of jangly electric guitar and synth sounds.
