The Love Junkies
Recorded & Mixed by Branko Cosic.
Recorded at The Haunt, Brisbane, 25th of April, 2015.
Hailing from the foothills of Perth, Western Australia, post-grunge three piece, The Love Junkies was founded by singer/songwriter, Mitch McDonald and drummer, Lewis Walsh at the end of 2009. The duo began slamming beats together many moons ago in high school, which slowly guided them towards their journey as The Love Junkies. Soon after the band hit the studios, long time high school buddy, Robbie Rumble came into the fold as their bassist, thus completing the line-up.
Power chords, punchy vibes, and high-octane of energy, the band’s sound is hard, fast, and unrelenting. Their infectious melodies linger in your mind, long after the record has stopped spinning. If you’ve had a chance to catch the band play over the year, you may have notice that drummer Lewis Walsh was probably sporting some make-up and possibly a dress. That’s because, Walsh actually came out as transgender last year. So, kudos to you Lewis for taking that stand and continue to bang out sick beats with The Love Junkies.
