Sydney indie-rock outfit Johnny Hunter have shared a hanging new single titled ‘Life’, described as “a moment of catharsis” for the quartet and “an avenue to find a renewed passion for life when we’re at our lowest”.
Making full use of the band’s enigmatic dynamism, the brand new observe canters on with a polychromatic rhythm pushed by daring and smoky bass guitars, shimmering keys, and vocals evocative of ‘80s new wave staples like Speaking Heads.

Alongside the observe’s launch this morning (September 16), Johnny Hunter frontman Nick Hutt shared an announcement expounding on its themes. “To find life is to find happiness, it is the ultimate end and purpose of our existence,” he mentioned.
“Life shouldn’t be discovered within the darkness of the night time, neither is it present in egocentric beliefs. It lies within the steadiness of the brand new day and the way we strategy our imperfections to carry steadiness to ourselves. The reply to The Flooring, an ultimatum proposed to the self, to alter or die, to sink or swim.
“The sun is shining, it’s time for change, appreciate what you have, know who you are and lose yourself in Life. Inspired by the moral dilemma I faced pulling beers for alcoholics to sustain a week to week pay cheque that was almost always whimsically spent on alcohol for myself. These people were dying right in front of my eyes (some did die) and I was joining them.”
‘Life’ comes as Johnny Hunter’s second launch for 2021, following the standalone single ‘The Floor’ again in July. The latter got here as their debut providing on indie label Cooking Vinyl, and a follow-up to their 2020 EP ‘Early Trauma’.
