junior boysJunior Boys are back in 2016 with their first album in almost five years, Big Black Coat, which was released last month and the lead track, “Over It” has been On-Repeat at B-Sides. Approaching Big Black Coat with renewed vigor is what encouraged Jeremy Greenspan and Matt Didemus to experiment with vocal treatments, as the former does on the idiosyncratically auto-tuned “Over It”. “One of the nice things about doing the solo stuff,” Greenspan explains, “and in particular the album with Jessy, because it did so well, was that I could stop thinking about Junior Boys as being the thing I do and start thinking about it as a thing to do. That meant I could work with Junior Boys music with the same spirit as I did when it was new. It was hugely liberating and invigorating me, because I was doing things I felt really good and confident about. I was really happy with the last two Junior Boys albums, but if I look back on it, they were challenging records to make, in a way that this one absolutely wasn’t.”

Junior Boys are currently touring North America with Jessy Lanza.
