JUNIOR BOYS formed in 1999 in Hamilton, Ontario.
Originally consisting of duo Jeremy Greenspan [vocals] with Johnny Dark, they created a sound that would accommodate and harmonize their many influences.
Dark left shortly after the project began, to be replaced by engineer Matt Didemus.
In 2007, Junior Boys second album So This Is Goodbye was shortlisted for the Polaris Music Prize.
After the release of 2011’s It’s All True, they pursued solo and side projects.
The fifth studio album by the synthpop and R&B duo is Big Black Coat — out on German label City Slang.
A European Tour starts this November and a free EP has been issued titled “Kiss Me All Night.”
A video has been released for Kiss Me All Night, directed by the superior Sophia Peer.
We had a listen —
A ribald beat thrums below the surface, while a sound much like a wobbling Ouija board fluctuates as if leading the spirits away and back into past-life regression…
Hardly trailblazing, this is nonetheless an elastic and flexible pleasure, with a pure voice and enough electronic ripples to light up the sky.
