It ramps up the feeling of early-20s anxiety, not least as the three band members, brothers Tim and Lewis Lloyd-Kinnings along with Cameron Gipp, slide further away from their adolescence. Responsibility, identity and reality looming ever darker on the horizon.
Tackling the confusion and cluelessness of early adulthood with their frantic but largely light-hearted garage-rock, Johnny Kills ruminate on small ‘p’ problems, flitting between sardonic, playful and earnest in their takes. Committing room silencing faux pas, self-imposed boredom and clumsily, blindly fumbling your way in first serious relationships are just some of the themes taking central stage in their modern life vignettes, tied together for the first time in a four-track collection.
As they term it: “fuzzy and anxious tunes, for fuzzy anxious times”.
