The Sun doesn’t shine too much in the English city of Leicester, hometown of ‘The Junipers’, but its warming rays can be felt all over their debut album “Cut Your Key”. This 5 – piece cosmic pop outfit are a breath of fresh air, that draw inspiration from the past, present & the future, creating a wall of sound by subtly utilising their collection of antique, primitive & modern instruments.
They have been honing their craft since 2000; in that time they have built their own studio, recorded & given away three demo albums & now, released their debut album proper. The band have received much praise & airplay on BBC Radio 2 and BBC6Music , & got a single of the week on Radio 2 in 2008.
Between them all they have a record collection to die for & have managed to draw on that wealth of sonic schooling to create a truly incredible & unique sound. “Honest, Joyful songs with sucrose vocals & chord changes pulled from a broken heart” has been the perspective of reviewers, a perfect summary of what this band are all about.
