THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “The Juka Trashy album Auto Fiction is inspired by the soundtracks of Quentin Tarantino and David Lynch and focuses on creating a cinematic experience rather than clinging on to a specific genre. You will experience a dusty, lo-fi universe of surf, rock, punk, delivered by a bluesy singer-songwriter.
Auto Fiction is a great example of what comes out of creative processes in a collision of different places: The cultural melting pot of Berlin, writing retreats in Austin (Texas) and Paris, Juka Trashy’s hometown Aarhus, coffees in Copenhagen, beers on Christiana and most importantly: Amazing musicians from more than 10 different countries.
The philosophy behind Auto Fiction is that you can’t create a musical journey for your listener without traveling, and you can’t make an album with a wide scope if everybody has the same cultural or artistic background. Auto Fiction has grown out of the international collaborations that are established when you dare to think out of the box and break the boundaries of genre, text, instrumentation, and working processes. All contributors have been asked to leave their unique fingerprint on the album and to consider it as a playground for creativity.”
