Junior Boys Return With ‘Big Black Coat’

Now that’s what we call maintaining momentum. Having already released killer albums from the likes of Caribou and experimental German composer Hauschka, you’d think Berlin label City Slang might decide to take a well deserved rest for the foreseeable future. You’d be wrong. Never a label willing to rest on its laurels, the imprint already has one eye on 2016 and has announced that they’ll be serving up a new album from pop straddling techno duo, Junior Boys next February.

The Canadians’ first album as Junior Boys in almost five years, they’ve been anything but idle in the mean time with Jeremy Greenspan releasing two solo singles and a collaborative EP on Jiaolong – the label run by his old friend Caribou – before co-writing and producing Jessy Lanza’s acclaimed album ‘Pull My Hair Back’ whilst the Berlin based Matt Didemus started releasing solo tracks under his Diva moniker and launched his own label, Obsession.

“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 I do. That meant I could work on Junior Boys music with the same spirit as I did when it was new. It was hugely liberating and invigorated 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.”
