Junior Boys

SEE EVENT DETAILS
20 years in to their acclaimed career as Junior Boys, Waiting Game finds producers Jeremy Greenspan and Matt Didemus in a tender and contemplative mood. Written and recorded in early 2020 during the uncertain period of the pandemic, it is a switch-up from their punchy, R&B-infused dance melodics. They tap into a gentler, more conscious way of moving through the world, one that Greenspan hopes that the listener finds in Waiting Game.

Junior Boys are a Canadian electronic pop group, founded in 1999 in Hamilton, Ontario by Jeremy Greenspan and Johnny Dark. Dark left the project shortly after, and was replaced by engineer Matt Didemus. The duo initially gained critical praise for their 2003 single "Birthday" and 2004 debut album Last Exit. Their work incorporates disparate influences from 1980s synthpop, UK garage, techno, and R&B. - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Junior_Boys

~~~~~~~~

Junior Boys have announced their return with Big Black Coat, their first album in almost five years and also the first for City Slang, who will release it on 5 February 2016. They've also shared lead single 'Big Black Coat', a decidedly wintry track that sees them embracing their love of techno while simultaneously refining their soul pop sensibilities.

A strikingly energised and intuitively dynamic set of songs, Big Black Coat is shaped by what Jeremy Greenspan and Matt Didemus have been doing in the five years since their last release. The Hamilton, Ontario duo have racked up four albums since they formed in 1999, including their 2004 debut Last Exit and 2006'sSo This Is Goodbye, two rapturous - and rapturously received - records that were as poignant as they were impeccably produced, and prefigured the digital R&B so beloved of many an artist in the last few years. Two albums followed, the last being It's All True in 2011.

Fusing disco and soul with the industrial pop and techno of Greenspan's formative teens is what makes Big Black Coat so distinctive and compelling. It's the sound of Junior Boys both cutting loose and reconnecting. As Greenspan sees it: "The fact that we haven't put out an album in a long time has been liberating, in that we haven't been so phenomenally successful that everyone knows who we are. With this album, a lot of people will be hearing us for the first time. There's a freedom that comes from that."
