LA’s Jr. are just starting out, but with songs this good, it’s only a matter of time until everyone’s listening.

As it stands at the moment, Jr. – an alt-pop three-piece from the US – are almost unheard of; their Facebook following a sign of a short but sweet existence. But social media, unfortunately, is in no way an appropriate indicator of talent and potential – things that this band have a lot of.
They’re from: Los Angeles
They are: Chris, Charlie & Kevin
They sound like: Local Natives, Born Ruffians, Vampire Weekend, The Shins

Having spent the last few months producing and perfecting their introspective indie sound, the Los Angeles-based trio have been sporadically posting a number of tracks online via the Soundcloud page. Frighteningly well-formed, these tracks give an incredible insight into what’s to come from a band who have already achieved so much.

The building sounds of ‘Saudade‘ lead the way for Jr., presenting sonically precise moments of songwriting and dynamics through thoughtful vocal lines, groove-laiden riffs and sparing electronic input. Tastefully quirky and ridiculously pleasing, Jr.’s fresh indie-esque sound is only complemented further with the introduction of their other available tracks.

Although it’s unlike some of the other more left-field music featured on this site, Jr.’s music is so instantly likable and thoughtful it’s hard to see how anyone could not like what these guys are doing. It’s just good, well-thought-out music with bags of style and personality – and your going to be hearing a lot more of it.

Jr. are currently working on their live show and are recording yet more music for release.
