Indie88 Video Premiere: The Junction Share ‘Changes’

'City Nights' album coming May 19th

Toronto indie Rock group The Junction have shared a live off the floor version of their upcoming single “Changes.”

Returning to the scene early last year after a four-year hiatus, The Junction have been ramping up the excitement for their next endeavor, their-long awaited fourth studio album City Nights.

Working with producers Gus Van Go and Werner F (Whitehorse, Hollerado), the indie group previously put out the calming and celestial title track “City Nights.” Today they are premiering a video for “Changes,” a 80s-inspired groove that could be mistaken for a slowed down disco hit.

City Nights is set to release on May 19th via Culvert Music. The Junction will cap off the release of the new album with a homecoming show at The Horseshoe Tavern on June 3rd.

“[‘Changes’] Is about the conscious and subconscious changes that inevitably occur within yourself. For better or for worse,” Brent Jackson told Indie88. “Since entering my 30s I’ve had negative changes caused by the weight of the world, heartbreak, and my brother’s death. The city can be an enabler and I’m no stranger to nightlife.”

“I detached myself from reality and substances came into the mix making it dangerously easy to slip away from oneself. I needed to make changes to get out of that downward spiral. I wanted to get back to me. Back to the upbeat person I used to be. Back to something that is less harmful and self-abusive.”
