Miss June burst into my life with an infectious energy and charm at a wild gig in their native Auckland in 2014. These ingredients have been perfected on their debut release, Bad Luck Party, which proudly flouts the influence of their Riot Grrrl forbearers on their denim-frayed sleeves.

Lead singer Annabel Liddell operates under the second wave feminist aegis of the ‘personal is political’, addressing relationship turmoil on the frenetic Two Hits. Best Girl captures their knack for crafting infectious pop hits embalmed in walls of guitar fuzz, yet Liddel’s perfervid, socially conscious delivery demands critical afterthoughts long after the wails of distorted crunch have subsided. Bad Luck Party sounds a triumphant soundtrack for a contemporary generation of Riot Grrrls.
