Melodic and immediate, surf-tinged hooks with a twist of the late 90’s
Sun Junkies are a four-piece garage rock group from Brantford Ontario. They deliver dopamine inducing melodies and immediate, surf-tinged hooks with a twist of the late 90’s indie introspective and irreverent lyrical sensibilities.
Formed in 2016 by singer/guitarist Noah Carmichael while in high school – the band settled into a definitive lineup in 2018, consisting of bassist Issa Mohammad, drummer Nick Stacy, and guitarist Ethan Silver.
The band self-released their debut album, Technicolor Daydream in 2019. With an almost masochistic dedication to the tried-and-true ethics of DIY, Sun Junkies record, produce, and mix their records themselves, relying on McDonald’s salaries and friends who can afford to lend a microphone or two. In this spirit, insofar the band has booked every gig themselves or with the help of friends and supporters and has toured the east coast of Canada in the summer of 2019.
The band remains determined and has taken advantage of quarantine, holding up in a basement to write and record their upcoming EP, Unconventional Methods of Transportation, which is due for release in July of 2021.
