It’s been four years since Toronto trio The Junction have shared any new music, and today they’ve announced their plans for a fourth studio album called City Nights. To celebrate the news, they’ve shared with Indie88 a first sample of what’s to come, the eponymous single “City Nights”.
Co produced by Jose Miguel Contreras at Slaughterhouse Studios and band members themselves, City Nights was edited by Werner F. and Gus Van Go (The Stills, Hollerado).
The Junction’s vocalist Brent Jackson had this to say about their newest single:
“It’s a love song to the songwriters oldest love… being a night hawk. It’s a seductive freedom under the street lights that leads him outside – an inspiring place to breath new sense to life. Keeps him thinking, driven and awakened. It shapes who he is and how he thinks. Overall, a place of mental calm where he can be at one with aloneness; he feels more alert and more ‘himself’ when the sun rolls down.
The lyrics were written while biking down the side streets around High Park. An ode to the night. It captures nostalgia, of the many times he’s danced in its street lit playground. This song is for everyone that relates. To connect us, ‘hawks’.”
City Nights and will be available via Culvert Music/Cadence Music Group on October 21st 2016.
