Muncie Girls have claimed the title of this weeks track of the week with thee brand new single ‘Picture Of Health’!
The fast-paced vigour of the track emphasises the punk undertones Muncie Girls are striving to achieve. The melodic intensity of the track was written after vocalist and guitarist Lande Hekt realised “how much easier it is to worry about your friends than it is to worry about yourself.”
Also marking the announcement of the bands second LP ‘Fixed Ideals’, the album is said to be a coverage topics of anxiety and mental health, the effects of too much alcohol wasting potential, having a desire to learn and be educated, as well as focusing on personal relationships and the importance of friendship and family. And what we feel when those relationships let us down. Muncie Girls’ second album also marks a progression as Lande played both guitar and bass when they were tracking. She comments “Having two guitars sounds really different and adds intricacy to the songs. I was listening to different music when I wrote the songs and when we recorded it so that probably sounds quite different. I was listening to a lot of The Replacements, Siouxsie and the Banshees, The Popguns and The Pastels so i wonder if any of that is audible! I think we all became a bit more adventurous when we were writing and recording this record.”
