Junip Release Video for Second Single, Your Life Your Call

Junip have released the video for Your Life Your Call, the second instalment in a two-part series leading up to the release of Junip’s self-titled album on April 22.

Director Mikel Cee Karlsson explains: “The idea was to make a short film divided into two parts where each part is influenced by a separate song but still maintains to create a whole. The videos tell the story of a tormented old man, stuck in a monotonous, loveless relationship. A situation that perhaps was not his choice, or preference to begin with. The old man is simply like all of us, a person influenced by the ideas and beliefs of others which also, unavoidably, influences his choices in life. This realisation is what he eventually tries to break free from.

“The story is partly told on a subconscious level where fragments of memory along with subjective fears and dreams are manifested, and just as relevant as anything else in the “real world” to comprehend the characters, and their actions. It is the experience of life in all it’s dark and comical absurdity.”

Your Life Your Call is the second single to be taken from Junip’s self-titled forthcoming second album which is out April 22 on City Slang.

Junip Release New Single Your Life, Your Call

Junip have announced the release of their new single Your Life, Your Call. The single is taken from their self-titled second album set for release on April 22 through City Slang. The launch of this new track comes as the band add a new London date at Shepherd’s Bush Empire after swiftly selling out Village Underground.

Your Life Your Call sees Junip take the listener through harmonic melodies and smooth synth beats which eventually navigates you to the dance floor. The single is different from Junip’s previous release Line of Fire which was more solemn. The chorus “It’s your life, it’s your call/Stand up or enjoy the fall” shines brightly through displaying Junip’s ever-loved ability to produce songs and lyrics that can be applied to everyone’s life situations. González explains their new sound best: “It felt like trying on new clothes when we first listened to it – it took a while to get comfortable with it but now I like it a lot.”

Junip – Line of Fire

A few weeks ago Junip announced that their second self-titled album will be released on April 22 through City Slang. Since then, new track Line of Fire has notched up over 200,000 plays and their London show at Village Underground has completely sold out.

Now the trio, Jose Gonzalez , Elias Araya and Tobias Winterkorn, have announced the release of the official video to accompany Line of Fire. This video is the first instalment of a two part series of videos directed by Swedish film-maker and former Jose Gonzalez documentary-maker, Mikel Cee Karlsson.

Dynamic trio, Junip

He explains: “The video(s) tell the story of a tormented old man, stuck in a relationship that perhaps was not his choice or preference to begin with. We see fragments from childhood, the first awkward kiss, the father watching over him making sure he follows the right path. The old man, like all of us, a person programmed by the convictions and beliefs of others. In the case of the old man, the unconscious suddenly manifests itself when a young, jeans wearing character appears in their home, forcing him to question who he really is.”

The video for Line of Fire is stunning as is the song itself. The video portrays the emotion behind the song perfectly; reflecting on the life you have led and what you might have done differently.  The images shown compliment Gonzalez’s lyrics to make sure the track gets you thinking. Line of Fire tells its audience a story and asks them to question their own choices in life.

You can see Junip live on the following dates:
May 1 – AT – Vienna – Szene
May 2 – CH – Zurich – Plaza
May 3 – DE – Heidelberg – Karlstorbahnhof
May 4 – DE – Munich – Kammerspiele Theatre
May 5 – DE – Berlin – Astra Kulturhaus
May 6 – DE – Hamburg – Uebel & Gefaehrlich
May 7 – NL – Amsterdam – Melkweg
May 8 – BE – Brussels – Les Nuits Botanique
May 10 – DE – Cologne – Stollwerck
May 13 – UK – London – Village Underground SOLD OUT
May 14 – FR – Paris – Trabendo

More dates to be announced very soon.
