JJUUJJUU – “Up To You”

Pooneh Ghana

For a band whose name I can’t spell or pronounce, JJUUJJUU are doing big things. Thus far this year, the LA-based experimental psychedelic rock collective, led by Desert Daze festival co-founder Phil Pirrone, released their single “Some,” a collaboration with the Brazilian band Boogarins, and played the first Coachella weekend. Now, as they’re getting ready to play Coachella again, JJUUJJUU have dropped a new single and announced a new round of tour dates.

The new JJUUJJUU single “Up To You” is a big, gooey groove with drums and guitars and keyboards and sound effects floating in every direction. It’s clearly inspired by past generations of space-rock, but it still manages to sound unmoored and vaguely futuristic. Below, check out that song and JJUUJJUU’s upcoming tour dates.
