New Junk City – “High In The Morning” Night Animal Records / Secret Pennies Records / Real Ghost Records – A BlankTV World Premiere!

Artist city, country: Atlanta, Georgia, U.S.A.

Artist Biography: “Listen, everyone knows that getting old kind of sucks. Simple tasks in life seem to be more difficult as the days and years go by, and you find yourself trading in record hunting and late night shows at dive bars for utility bills and early morning alarm clocks. The dichotomy of growing older and wiser and maintaining youthful exuberance becomes harder and harder to manage with every trip around the sun.”

On New Junk City’s sophomore full length, ‘Same Places’, the Atlanta-based quartet explore through this idea of trying to stay young at heart while your body grows older and older. Building upon the foundation the band laid on their debut LP (2014’s Self Titled Effort), ‘Same Places’ continues the band’s trend of high-energy, high-intensity melodic folk-inspired and pop-influenced style of punk, while also dipping the bands metaphorical toes into some new realms.

Often compared to the likes of The Menzingers, early-era Get up Kids and The Gaslight Anthem, New Junk City layers a combination of both brash and noodling guitars over a driving and pounding rhythm section, combined with graveled-but-oddly-melodic vocals with a certain fervor and passion not often captured on record. And while the band’s music and sound certainly is one of their biggest selling points, on ‘Same Places’ singer John Vournakis belts out nine heart-on-the-sleeve songs and stories dealing with the fear of loss, fear of being alone, and fear of being stuck, both in a literal and metaphorical sense. From the squealing feedback that opens the record, all the way through it’s abrupt ending, Same Places takes the listener through a journey of growing older, while still trying to remember who you are.

About the Video: “High in the Morning” is taken from the full-length LP, ‘Same Places’ released in October 2018.

Song Lyrics: “High in the Morning”

I used to be able
to get high in the morning.
All these things have changed
but I don’t feel that different.

You’re getting tired of me
and my doomsday anxiety.
It’s getting old, this feeling
that I’m losing my sanity.

I know this night’s not the end,
but maybe someday soon it should be.
For now, let’s just act happy.
So we can feel loved and a little less lonely.

It’s been the better part of 10 years and
I still don’t know where its going.
So how can you act so surprised,
like you never saw it coming?

Well I’ve never been good
at knowing what I want,
but I could perform exegesis
on why everything you want’s so wrong.

“You’re just like me” she said
“and someday soon you’ll realize
you wasted all your time and all you did
was prove them right”

I know this night’s not the end,
but maybe someday soon it should be.
For now, let’s just act happy.
So we can feel loved and a little less lonely.

It’s been the better part of 10 years and
I still don’t know where it’s going.
So how can you act so surprised,
like you never saw it coming?
