Parisian trio Juniore have released the visuals for ‘Bizarre’, the latest track to be taken from their upcoming album Un Deux Trois.
Juniore is the creation of Anna Jean, a musician who travelled the world as a child living an almost nomadic lifestyle with her father, famed French writer J.M.G. Le Clezio. While her formative years were undoubtedly influenced by new cultures and surroundings, Jean returned back to her Parisian routes when dictating the sound of the band. The wild 1960s Francoise Hardy era of France, a time and a place that has helped shape their hometown’s modern history, sees Juniore attempt to build the next chapter of Parisian musical history without forgetting its origin.
Singer Jean, who founded the group in 2013, told Far Out: “I had this fantasy of making music with a whole bunch girls, like the all-ladies bands from the ’60s. I brought together a couple of my old friends, Verena and Laurence, who brought their friends and their friends’ friends and by the time we did our first concert, we were seven girls in total. I thought we were going to be like a French version of The Shangri Las but I think we sounded more like The Shaggs.”
“A Moricone-like whistler, sensuous beats and biting organs, in so many words, Juniore tells the tale of the Bizarre times we live in, in the strange and familiar atmosphere of their Yéyé Noir, where paradoxes peacefully exist,” lead singer Anna Jean said.
She added: “Juniore revives the Swinging Sixties’ acid mood, pumped on high definition, and will surely seduce all who often feel ‘bizarre’.”
