In the summer of 2009, Gothenburg, Sweden's jj quietly released one of the year's most critically-acclaimed albums. The album jj nș 2 was the group's debut full-length (their first single was jj nș 1). Secretly Canadian is proud to join forces with Swedish label Sincerely Yours for the worldwide release of this remarkable record.
jj create R&B and balearic dub from the ghosts of lost lovers; pop as delicate as a fawn's nose across blades of frosted grass. It is the soundtrack for friends packed into the town square's tiniest tavern, their moontanned, apple-cheeked faces glowing, their dilated pupils filled with all the meaning and meaninglessness of a magic 8-ball. Their music is both carefree without carelessness, and self-aware without being self-conscious. With it, they build an ice bridge arching from gothenburg into the heart of middle America, and everywhere in between.
Secretly Canadian is proud to present the release of jj n° 2.
jj nș 3 is also available from Secretly Canadian this Spring.
Praise for jj
"JJ's music floats so cleanly--instantly gratifying, calming and still mysterious."
- The Fader
Praise for jj n° 2
"It's a gorgeous ode to chemically-assisted euphoria, or an effective, shimmering simulation for those who keep their intoxications on the legal side."
- BEST NEW MUSIC Pitchfork
"The year's best debut came from crypto-genius Swedes who sound like Enya covering Lil Wayne at Lilith Fair 2015."
- The Washington Post
