A delightfully wonky slice of art pop straight from the school of MGMT and The Flaming Lips, Trunky Juno intends Serial Killer Vibes to be the “musical equivalent of verbally digging a hole that just seems to get deeper and deeper with each word”.

To my ears, it’s a warped and pristine send-up of the anxieties that come with living inside of your own head that is catchy as all hell and delightfully entertaining, calling to mind the bloodshot-eyed delight of Pavement and the vibrato pedal sonics of Mac Demarco and Homeshake. Although the song comfortably suits a ‘vibe’ that refuses to lose its currency in the current indie climate, Trunky Juno’s personality and confidence elevates it to a higher plateau. Exquisite.
