A kaleidoscopic of sonic indie pop palettes and wistful lyrics
Trunky Juno is back with latest buoyant single Hawaiian Pizza. Showcasing his trademark melodic hooks, kaleidoscopic sonic palette and wistful lyrics, the track is the perfect pizza-themed accompaniment to the start of summer, and a high point off the also-released Good Dog EP.
In Hawaiian Pizza, Trunky celebrates the friendships we make in spite of (and often because of) our differences, using the context of a controversial pizza topping to point towards a more fundamental and universal message. Through the lyrics “I’ve got Hawaiian pizza in the oven coming soon, the fridge is full of cold ones, enough for two”, Trunky highlights the joy found in sharing the simpler things in life with others and in so doing sounds like the type of friend we all need.
As he explains, “Hawaiian Pizza is a song about tuning out people who shit all over everything you like. I like Hawaiian pizza, you like Hawaiian pizza so let’s be friends and eat Hawaiian pizza together.”
As well as Hawaiian Pizza, Trunky Juno’s forthcoming Good Dog EP includes previous singles Daddy’s Gone for Cigarettes, Serial Killer Vibes and Favourite Show which have been championed by Jack Saunders on BBC Radio 1’s Future Artists and The Indie Show, been playlisted across Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music and YouTube, and featured in Wonderland, Dork, DIY and The Line of Best Fit. Previous support has also come from Beats 1 (Zane Lowe) and BBC Introducing. Trunky is a BBC Focus Artist for 2021.
Talking about the new EP, Trunky says:
“Good Dog EP is the next evolution of Trunky as I morph from writing silly yet insightful songs in my bedroom, into writing silly yet insightful songs in my bedroom that sound better. On the surface it may seem like a bunch of nonsense about pizza and cigarettes, but if you dig a little deeper hopefully people will release there’s a lot more to these songs – whether tackling themes of escapism or the one-way mirror of social media.”
