Top Tracks: Junaco – Willow

You know those times when a whole season seems to pass you by in a single day? Every time you look out the window the weather is doing something different. You see your surroundings change so starkly in such a short space of time, see a different side to them in dreary drizzle, blue skies, or golden sunsets. I get that same feeling from this new single from LA duo Junaco. The aptly named ‘Willow’ has the uncanny ability to shift and bend into whatever shape the pair will it. The dark, gothic folk opening becomes slowly imbued with bright melodies, warm Americana guitar tones begin to ring out, before they change things up even further by swapping vocal duties and throwing some jangly indie pop guitar and expressive drums into the mix. All this variety, this spectrum of emotions, yet all connected by a single unifying thread.
