Junior Boys Artist Snapshot:

A Hamilton, Canada-based electro-pop duo that combined the twitchy, rhythmic science of post-drum & bass dance with the melancholy synth-swept textures of New Romantic pop, Junior Boys was formed in the late `90s by singer Jeremy Greenspan and beat-maker Johnny Dark. After a slew of rejected demo recordings in the early `00s, the group were picked up by obscure U.K. indie KIN, who released their debut single, "Birthday." Dark left soon after to start a solo project and, with the addition of engineer Matt Didemus, the JBs continued as a duo and released their critically-hailed debut LAST EXIT (2004). Follow-ups, SO THIS IS GOODBYE (2006) and BEGONE DULL CARE (2009), indicated a broader palette of influences and more confident songwriting, with Jeremy Greenspan's buoyant falsetto increasingly taking the fore.

Product Notes

Let's get the inevitable comparison out of the way: like the Postal Service, the Junior Boys craft a wan indie electro-pop variation on blue-eyed soul. But in contrast to Ben Gibbard's romantic yearning, Junior Boys singer Jeremy Greenspan's voice emerges from the depths of a post-traumatic chill, emanating a disappointment too laconic to accurately be called sadness. "High Come Down" could be Darryl Hall produced by Timbaland, but only in an alternate universe where neither man was interested in selling records or monopolizing your attention--the beats shuffle of their own accord rather than skittering playfully, and Greenspan sings as though there's a sleeping baby in the next room. The group's new-wave influences are similarly easy to spot, yet they appear only as silhouettes, drained of the original artists' egotism. Over time, the Junior Boys' teasing reserve proves itself as engaging as most other artists' forceful intensity. --Keith Harris
