Miss June

Music Rock, Punk Auckland, New Zealand

Since their 2015 debut EP Matriarchy, New Zealanders Miss June have released an EP every single year, and each of them left less and less doubt: If they keep this up, the first full album from this band will make waves in their home country and far beyond.

Dirty drums, highly energetic guitars that sound like they were plucked from memories of the nineties, the eccentric vocals of singer Annabel Liddell, and socially conscious lyrics as befit a proper punk band—all performed with the sort of no-nonsense confidence that's rarely found anywhere outside the Australian indie scene. Miss June don't sound like a part of that scene, though, and that's fine. Instead, they have an independent style of their own, somewhere between Sonic Youth and Le Tigre. In Auckland, they've already garnered a reputation as the hottest, most headstrong DIY fare New Zealand is set to export in the next years.
