London quintet Junodream have released their new single Nobody Wants You, taken from their EP released on 29th November 2019.
Following on from Limiter, Nobody Wants You focuses on crippling self-doubt and addressing contemporary concerns: the balance between insecurity and living up to the social norms and identity that comes with modern masculinity. Listen below:
“Nobody Wants You” is the tug-of-war with the voice in your head that’s telling you you’re shit. Like a struggle for control of the steering wheel, before you jump the bridge” explains Dougal. “The song had been in the tank for a while, but we could never find the right middle section. We were in Bristol, angrily thrashing around trying to find something, and then it all came together with that one extra beat. We will forever know this song as Beats.”
The upcoming EP presents a collection of vignettes of the experiences of an ordinary young man – experiences each of the band have been through.
“These songs are all related to anxiety, which is something we all struggle with,” says Vyvyan. “When I look back at the past year, there’s a feeling of dissatisfaction, of wanting to break away from being suffocated by debt, relationships and rent. Most people we know are in the same situation. Maybe they’re stuck in jobs they don’t want to do, or are confused, depressed and feel inferior, or who feel that they have no control over their lives.”
Junodream are Ed Vyvyan (lead vocalist), Dougal Gray (guitar), Tom Rea (guitar), Will Ryder (bass) and Jake Gidley (drums).
