"I went from loving myself, to hating myself, to loving someone else."

June Body joined the small community of Halifax alt-rock bands in early 2017 with the release of their stripped-down bedroom rock record, Star for You. After performing the album locally for a year, the band had clearly become something different than what people had heard on record.

In 2018, the band released Life from Underneath; the 6-track follow-up EP that represents a distinct sonic shift from their debut. The heavier, punchier sophomore release combines modern indie rock sounds and the nostalgic tones of 90s alternative. It netted them a #8 spot on The East’s ‘Top 100 Best Music of 2018’ list, as well as an ‘Alternative Recording of the Year’ nomination at the Music Nova Scotia Awards. The band has embarked on several Canadian tours since releasing Life from Underneath, and is currently working on their next full-length album.
