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.”

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.
