About this item
Canadian duo Junior Boys release their sixth album, ‘Waiting Game’, on City Slang. Six years since their last album, 2016’s ‘Big Black Coat’. ‘Waiting Game’ finds producers Jeremy Greenspan and Matt Didemus in a tender and contemplative mood; a switch-up from their punchy, R&B-infused dance melodics for something more soothing. Hushed vox whisper through crystalline electronics, glowing pads like lanterns in the snow; intimate yet technologically focused songs that traverse genre boundaries and touch the soul.
The album’s additional musicians are Canadians, too; Caribou collaborator Colin Fisher performs saxophone throughout and Bonjay frontwoman Alanna Stuart sings alongside Greenspan on the song “Yes 2”. In this, Junior Boys have made an album that reflects the quiet beauty of the world, so long as you’re prepared to truly listen.
Junior Boys will embark on an extensive 20th anniversary headline tour in January and March 2023
