Local Record Review: 'Junior High' by Junior High
The band's eponymous debut, released next Tuesday, offers a dose of nostalgia coated with candy-colored synths. The album gives a knowing wink to New Wave enthusiasts from the minute you press play. Their lead single "D.O.P.E.," offer sweet, cool vocals, minimalist beats and riffs galore. With sonic roots firmly planted in electro sounds of the 80s, there's no radical twist from those basic approaches throughout the album.
Junior High is released on Tuesday May 22 via iTunes and other outlets. Their video for "PSA" has just been released.
