As distributed by BURGER RECORDS - Parisian Indie meets Garage rock and Psychedelic Sixties Yé-yé band Juniore have released the video for their song “Magnifique” today. The song appears as a bonus track on the cassette edition of their debut LP Ouh Là Là, which came out in 2017 in France and will be released in the US in June via Burger Records. Watch and share “Magnifique” here. Juniore has also announced a mini-tour of the US starting June 13 in New York City.

“I realised my friends were mostly females and fell in love with the idea of a girl band of sorts, like the 60’s groups I grew up listening to,” says Juniore’s Anna Jean. “That’s what I wanted most. A kind of sisterhood, made up of plenty of interesting and talented women. And of course, to write music, connect, and share it with the world.”

The result that this sisterhood produced is a dreamy kaleidoscope of sounds that Jean playfully labels “yéyé noir”. As displayed on their debut album, the Paris group also explore surf grooves, sunshine pop, sizzling psychedelia and garage rock. Whilst the music is buoyant, sleek and undeniably sexy in its skip and beat, it contains a lyrical depth that nestles deeper than the good times vibes of the sonics.

For the album, Jean worked on most of the songs in her attic on an acoustic guitar, writing songs inspired by everyone from Dario Argento to Francoise Hardy to Screamin’ Jay Hawkins. She then took them to her band, consisting of Swanny Elzingre (drums), and someone called the Thing on bass.

After two 7 inches released in 2015, their EP (Le Phonographe/A+LSO/Sony France) and a cassette on Burger Records in 2016, their first album Ouh Là Là (Le Phonographe/A+LSO/Sony France) was released in France in 2017. In June 2018, the album will be released in the UK on the label Outré, with an exclusive song “Magnifique” and a cassette version will be coming out in the US on Burger Records. Juniore will be in the US for a mini tour, see below for dates.
