Despite the feel-goody sound of Junip's "Line of Fire" (the sneak preview from the forthcoming spring 2013 album), Jose Gonzalez' vocals command impressive, melancholy control of the band's sound. In a recent interview with Pitchfork, Jose discussed the dynamic: "I let the music set the tone of the lyrics and, this time, I allowed myself to write more about relationships and emotions, in a girly way almost. [laughs] But it's not always personal; it's about making the music emotional or big."
Their music video doesn't disappoint in this regard and we hope to see more of the same on their recently announced North American tour.
What would you do,
if it all came back to you?
Each crest and each wave,
bright as lightning.
