The debut EP from Japan Review, JUNO, has been released on limited CD and digitally across Bandcamp and all the usual streaming and download services.
The EP captures the band’s exploratory nugaze sound and while it may be lo-fi sonically it evokes huge soundscapes and hints at the potential for deeper journeys on future releases.
Formed in 2014 the EP was written and recorded by Adam O’Sullivan and Dom Ashton and the band are now putting together a live line-up with gigs due to be announced soon.
Of the release Reckless Yes co-founder Pete Darrington said: “I think I was less than 20 seconds into the first Japan Review track when I knew I wanted to work with this project. More than just a nu-gaze band, the mix of electronica and hazy glide guitar conjures images of a dark sparse near future of Blade Runner proportions.
“Main man Adam together with his collaborators is architecting soundscapes that will take your breath away. 21st Century post-rock genius – reinventing the guitar in a way that deserves to reach a wider audience.”
