Track Of The Day: Miss June – ‘Best Girl’

Sometimes you just want to hear some scuzzy, grungy rock music by people with scruffy clothes and messy hair. Miss June, who hail from Auckland and have just finished supporting Idles on their New Zealand tour, have recently signed to Frenchkiss Records and released the track ‘Best Girl’. It is a surly take on the inbuilt need for female overachievement amongst young women.

Singer, writer, musician, skateboarder, model and doctor (!), Annabel Liddell, has an understated, deadpan style that is reminiscent of Kim Gordon and ‘Best Girl’ is “an anthem for anyone who has been misled from birth into battle for a spot that doesn’t exist.” It’s one for the Heathers-watching, black-wearing, cussing dispossessed amongst us. The band will release their first full record in September, so ‘Best Girl’ is by way of being a taster track for what is to come.

Double A-side ‘Best Girl’/’Twitch 7’ is out now via Frenchkiss Records. Catch Miss June live in the UK at the following dates:

12th June (tonight!) – The Windmill, London
15th June – Bushstock Fest, London
