Juniore is the brainchild of French singer/songwriter Anna Jean. Fusing '60s influences (Nico meets Françoise Hardy), their work is at once haunting and rhythmic, propelled by sensual, reverb-drenched melodies. Their first U.S. release is a self-titled compilation out May 20th via Burger Records (cassette & digital). The album contains six tracks from 2015's acclaimed Marabout EP, four tracks from their first two 7" releases + one bonus track.
Hypnotic and dreamy, Anna's soft voice pulls us in to tell us stories of loveless mornings and sleepless nights, imaginary apocalypses, walks of shame and unhappy endings. Desperately hopeful, Juniore's tunes are a mix of old school melodies and modern lyrics, filled with delight and melancholy. Somewhere between Sergio Leone's spaghetti westerns and urban adventures straight out of Nouvelle Vague films, Juniore stretches out time and space, both dark and light, tense and reassuring.
