JUNIORS are an Indie Pop quartet formed in Leicester. Technically adept, they’re capable of producing both furiously urgent and hypnotically dreamy Indie Rock featuring distorted guitars, complex melodies, uplifting vocals and pounding drums.
Following the conveniently timed demise of previous band projects, school friends Jamie Hives (vocals/guitar), Jake Tasker (bass) and William bond(drums) put together new project JUNIORS in 2013, later asking Daniel Lee to complete the lineup on guitar in 2014.
Singles ‘We Swim’ and ‘Declare & Surrender’ gained the attention and airplay of BBC Introducing shows across the country, securing the band a slot at Reading & Leeds 2014 and airplay on BBC Radio 1’s Jen and Ally show.
Dubbed by the BBC as ‘Future Stars’, new single ‘Elusion’, taken from their new EP ‘Barcelona’ is set to raise the band’s profile even higher throughout 2015.
