Junodream as they describe they are “all introverted and deeply cynical, a reflection of our self-deprecating humour. But we’re also very hopeful. We often find humour in the bleak and trivial, be it an argument in the car (Terrible Things), or getting barged in a nightclub and being too afraid to do anything about it (Limiter). There’s a whole universe to explore in these moments”.
We got a chance to ask the band some questions, here’s what they had to say.
Who were your musical influences growing up?
“Between the five of us it was a real mixture dependent on what our parents would force upon us. Although we all shared the likes of The Beatles, Van Morrison, Pink Floyd and many other greats. Bear in mind though that the main chunk of our childhood happened in the 00s and so think it’s fair to say we were given a fair few Robbie CDs”.
What has been your best gig?
“Grasnapolsky Festival earlier this year – our first time playing in the Netherlands. A few other acts supposedly on at the same time-slot were unable to get there. Not us, chugging along in our crusty van. We forced our way onto the main stage and just really let loose. What a scene”.
Can you tell us a bit about your music?
“Think of ‘Easy Life’ as the appetiser. There’ll be something a bit meatier for people to get their teeth stuck into later in the year”.
Can you describe your music in 3 words?
“Space Rock Odyssey”.
What makes your music stand out?
“It’s really really really good”.
What are your plans for the rest of 2020?
“Now lockdown has ended we will lock ourselves in a room for the rest of the year, only emerging for shows (god willing) and Christmas (potentially). We also have fairly seismic plans to release something that’s just delightful later this year. Now is a great time to invest in Junodream”.
If your band had to be remembered for one thing apart from your music what would you want it to be?
“Our razor-sharp wit”.
Any gig’s coming up?
“You betcha. 8th October at Omeara, London. 30th September at Heartbreakers, Southampton and 1st October at Boileroom in Guildford. Good clean fun. Very clean”.
