HEALTHY JUNKIES – “SOMETHING IN THE WAY”
A SPILL EXCLUSIVE MUSIC PREMIERE
Healthy Junkies are everything that epitomizes the indie punk spirit – driven, authentic, and capable of causing a riot at any moment. As they prepare to release new album Forever on the Road on 25th Sept, the band have unveiled a haunting cover of Nirvana’s “Something in the Way” inspired by the time they met Krist Novoselic in Seattle during their U.S. tour in 2018.
As a band that have toured relentlessly since their formation in 2011, until the global lockdown of 2020, they came into the new record still firmly locked in the groove. Their own fuzz drenched take on “Something in the Way” follows single “Last Day In L.A.”.
The album was made during the aforementioned period of quarantine and has reflections of recent tours and life beyond the road. It offers a compelling record more akin to chapters of a thrilling novel rather than bubblegum throwaway rock n pop. Lead singer Nina Courson shines throughout with her Parisian drawl inflecting the Junkies’ brand of rock n roll with tones of 60s femme fatales Nico and Brigitte Bardot.
“We took a trip to Seattle, Olympia and Aberdeen playing shows along the way. We visited under the bridge which Kurt you used to hang out at and references in the song in an attempt to capture his spirit in our version.” ~Phil Honey Jones
