About Juniore

The “yéyé noir” of Juniore has always been rooted in the cinematic as much as the musical.

The Paris outfit’s blending of 1960s French pop, hazy psychedelia, seamless pop, surf grooves and lush orchestration feels as intertwined with big screen aesthetics as greatly as it does being found in the grooves of vinyl. So it makes perfect sense that the band would sooner or later find themselves appearing on more film and TV soundtracks, including the universally lauded drama Killing Eve.

While that cross-pollination between sultry, sophisticated pop and good-time energy and vibrancy is certainly present, there’s also a wealth of other touching points that underpin the record. So much so that Anna-Jean says of the themes that run through the album: “It’s a mix of everything we have loved and watched and felt in the last few years. It’s like a laboratory of feelings – not really my or our feelings but more universal feelings and emotions – it’s      like a nonsensical Frankenstein’s laboratory.” However, as fun as this record is, much like its predecessor, there’s an underlying lyrical message that remains a key part of the band’s identity as they push forward equality-based principles. “It’s the same as we’ve been trying to state since the beginning,” Anna- Jean suggests. “The importance of being independent, of counterculture, humor and poetry. Of not taking ourselves seriously but being very serious about it and fighting against sexism, ageism, racism, consumerism – all the worthwhile fights.”
