Junior Boys – “Big Black Coat”

The Ontario duo Junior Boys have been making sleek, sparkling, finely textured electronic pop music for well over a decade, but it’s been a while since we heard from them. It’s All True, their last album, came out back in 2011, and the two members have kept themselves busy with other projects since. Jeremy Greenspan, for instance, has released solo music and collaborated with Caribou and Jessy Lanza. But now they’re back; their new album Big Black Coat will come out early next year. The album’s title track is a patient, signing seven-minute synthpop meditation, with a sense of jerky anxiety to it. Check it out below.

Big Black Coat is out 2/5 on City Slang.
