jj nº 3
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.
Praise for jj"JJ's music floats so cleanly--instantly gratifying, calming and still mysterious."- The Fader
Praise for jj nº 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
