The band are on tour right now in Europe - all tourdates in our tourdates section



We are happy to share with you the new Junip single, "Your Life, Your Call" off of their self-titled sophomore release available April 22nd via City Slang. While the pulsating beat and overall flow of the track might be a departure for González and crew the message remains poignantly and traditionally steeped in Junip sensitivity. Armed with a chorus that rings brightly through, “It’s your life, it’s your call/Stand up, or enjoy your fall” Junip delivers what this threesome does best, heartfelt messages that are applicable to any listener’s life experiences. Charging down a new trail González explains it best,  “It felt like trying on new clothes when we first listened to it – it took a while to get comfortable with it, but now I like it a lot.” 



“What would you do/If it all came back to you/ Each crest of each wave/ bright as lightning
What would you say/If you had to leave today/ Leave everything behind/Even though, for once, you’re shining”

JUNIP - Elias Araya, José González, Tobias Winterkorn – release the first single off their eagerly awaited self-titled second album!

"Line Of Fire“ is the first new material from the band since the release of their 2010 acclaimed album 'Fields'. More information on the track and album after the jump, but first, have a listen to the track, and make a note of the tourdates listed below - you're not going to want to miss this...

Junip - Line Of Fire by JUNIP

Featuring vocals by José González with Elias Araya on drums and Tobias Winterkorn on keys, “Line of Fire” showcases a bolder, more mature Junip – once again eager to embrace you with their infectious blend of percussion and passionate, immeasurable waves of genuine emotion. Unleashing opulent melodies atop of hypnotic grooves, the track splits itself into a dance between flamenco syncopation and krautrock repetition, while González’s heartfelt vocals crest with unbridled sentiment and lead “Line of Fire” to its symphonic climax. A true stunner.

Within a few seconds of devouring “Line of Fire” you will take note of the ease with which Elias, José and Tobias blend their individual styles into one adept, fluid and pulsating movement. Extensive touring following Fields allowed them to get a jumpstart on writing, “We’d press ‘record’ when we started jamming, and end up with a pretty complete song structure when we finished,” González explains.

The Swedish band also announce UK & European tourdates in May 2013 including London’s Village Underground on 13th of May. The dates follow the release of their Self-titled album
out on April 22 via City Slang in Europe.
