Since then, they’ve put pen to paper at Island Records, garnered huge support from BBC Radio 1, earning themselves a headline slot on the BBC Introducing stage at Glastonbury, finishing runners up in the BBC Sound of 2020, as well as earning a spot in our Ones To Watch list for this year, which you can view here.Mastered at Abbey Road by engineer Christian Wright, Junk Food offers up the band’s signature blend of indie-rock, pop and hip-hop, only this time around they're ruminating their new-found party lifestyle attributed to a rapid rise in fame. The record also features a funk-laden collaboration with South London musician, Arlo Parks, titled Sangria, which you can listen to here.
Speaking of their mastering session at the Studios, the band said: “It was a privilege to get the tunes mastered at Abbey Road, the home of music, a place with so much musical heritage. Didn’t actually listen to the masters cause I was too busy looking around… and yeah we are basically the Beatles anyway.”
