Biography

JUNO! have just completed the recording of their new single ‘Battle Royale’ following on from their acclaimed 2008 debut ‘These Boys Are Athletes’ and ‘Jet Set Juno!’.

Released on limited edition vinyl in January 2008, by the legendary Shifty Disco Records, ‘These Boys Are Athletes’ was heralded as the “coolest and probably cheekiest pop song in years” by Rough Trade. Neu Magazine proclaimed: “If Shifty Disco Record’s... had to be summed up by the sound of one song, this is that song... JUNO! Vs Manda Rin have cooked up a storm!”. And Scotland’s national newspaper, the Daily Record didn’t mince its words either: “Poptastic electro pop from JUNO!”.

Their second single, ‘Jet Set Juno!’ released on the Kopparberg-sponsored Collective Records in July 2008 was also met with good reviews including, from the Daily Record: “Bis singer Manda Rin adds her unique vocals to Scots band JUNO!’s huge party tune!” (4/5). The single was exported to Japan where it has been championed by the illustrious Starsign Records. The success of the single in Japan has meant 2009 will see Starsign release JUNO!’s debut album ‘Harder than it Should Be’.

JUNO!’s sound is fuelled by influences such as CSS, Bis, Blur and their favourite new band Late of the Pier. 2008 has seen JUNO! receive airplay on Britain’s leading radio stations such as BBC Radio One (Vic Galloway, Huw Stephens), XFM London (John Kennedy) and Clyde One (Sharon Oakley) as well as being playlisted at XFM Scotland.

The past year has also seen JUNO! selected to play at several festivals including: Go North, Rock Ness and the Glasgow International Arts Festival, as well as performing a DJ set at the Hydro Connect Festival.

JUNO! can also claim support slots for some of Britain’s most exciting new bands including: Glasvegas, Operator Please, Robots in Disguise, Black Affair (Ex-Beta Band) and Thomas Tantrum.
