Juniore’s second album Un Deux Trois is released on February 28th with more cosmic jazz, leftfield electronics and avant garde soundtracks.
Juniore is the brainchild of Anna Jean – a singer who lent her voice to songs of Parisian electro acts like Jackson, Jérôme ”Tacteel” Echenoz and Bot’Ox. Anna Jean is joined this time by four other female musicians and they experiment with surf, psychedelia, French 60s pop and space age music. Producer Samy Osta (Rover, La Femme, Louis Chedid) uses Anna’s mysterious voice to great effect, having been described as reminiscent of 60s muses like Nico and Françoise Hardy.
Band leader Anna said: “A Moricone-like whistler, sensuous beats and biting organs, in so many words, Juniore tells the tale of the bizarre times we live in, in the strange and familiar atmosphere, where paradoxes peacefully exist. Juniore revives the Swinging Sixties’ acid mood, pumped on high definition, and will surely seduce all who often feel bizarre.”
Here’s latest single Bizarre (as Anna keeps alluding to):
Unloved – a band featuring producer and DJ David Holmes – were commissioned to score BBC smash Killing Eve. The darkly comic drama featured the music of Juniore, chosen by Holmes, as well as Unloved singer Jade Vincent, Keefus Ciancia and series music supervisor Catherine Grieves.
