Swedish duo JJ‘s newest album V, is out now worldwide via Secretly Canadian and Sincerely Yours. Preview the new album above by watching their cinematic video for “All White Everything” below and hear two tracks off the album via our Soundcloud.
Critics have weighed in on the new release:
“Kastlander has a voice as warm and fragile as any in independent music, but she’s just as inclined to infuse it with hip-hop’s braggadocio.”
– The FADER
“… when they’re able to scale that wall and dance with the stars, the album’s a treat.”
“The new album flexes huge melodies and big feelings, and every song feels like a finely sculpted top-40 single in a more hazed-out reality than the one we currently occupy.”
Still reeling from “All White Everything“? Yeah, us too. JJ brings us another track off their upcoming album, V, this time with the soaring, Cirque du Soleil-esque “Dean & Me“. Listen closely, and you’ll catch a sample of Leslie Gore‘s throwback “It’s My Party” (I Can Cry If I Want To). Hear the track above or on Soundcloud / YouTube.
Take note, JJ are back and if you missed their epic trailer a few weeks ago, they are ready to unleash their first new album in four years titled V, out August 19th via Secretly Canadian / Sincerely Yours. To preview the new album the Swedish duo has released a new song from the album called “All White Everything”. Listen to the new track above or on our Soundcloud / YouTube.
