Melbourne-based outfit Junior Bones have shared their latest single ‘Dust’.
The track is a wholesome reflection of the band’s influences, spanning across folk music, psych-rock, indie-pop and post-punk. Bright keys, resonant percussion and intricate guitar plucks are key components to ‘Dust’, allowing itself to ruminate over sentiments of romance, acceptance and hope. Despite presenting itself as a mellow, easy-going listen, the track sees Junior Bones at their most vulnerable and introspective.
Their latest offering follows this year’s debut EP ‘Late Night Luxury,’ a project that hones in on frontman Ryan Temby’s song-writing. There is a natural synergy between Junior Bones, with Temby and Paul Inglis having spent a considerable time together in previous band, Pretty Mess. Since then, the pair have carved their own lane, now joined by Gavin Kerr, Tom Bullock and John Baxter.
From start to finish, ‘Dust’ is a warm embrace, a joyous return for Junior Bones.
In conversation, the band describe the track as: “an old grizzled cowboy on top of a meandering horse who wanders listlessly from the high plains to the ocean. Dipping his feet in the water he is rebirthed, transforming into a coral ecosystem, gently surging back and forth with the changing tides.”
