After a 5-year hiatus, JUNIP have returned to work on a new album and play a live European tour. Junip is most well known as the band of José González, known for his solo covers of Joy Division, the Knife and Massive Attack, but with influences ranging from Neu! to John Martyn, Junip sound mostly like Junip. They take González’s softly plucked guitar and unhurried vocals and pair them with a louder sound and underlying current of hypnotic rhythms. They craft their indie folk into dark, moody and sometimes haunting songs, while still keeping the beauty that made González’s solo work famous in the first place.
