Swedish post-rock quartet JUNODEF unveil mesmerising ‘Heights’

Swedish post-rock quartet JUNODEF return with a hypnotising new track ‘Heights’, bringing atmospheric soundscapes together with mesmerising vocals.

The band, consisting of Karin Grönkvist (guitar/vocals), Tyra Örnberg (bass/vocals), Norea Persson (drums) and Rode Grönkvist (synths), bring their signature sound to create a captivating track that encompasses distorted guitars and sharp glitches of electronica. Fans of PJ Harvey, Björk and Zola Jesus will find themselves mesmerised by the post-rock world created by JUNODEF.

“The song is about the realisation that something is about to come to an end and the fear that accompanies that realisation,” the band says about the track.

‘Heights’ is the moment just before the inevitable happens, the place where everything is still fine and normal; where time has stopped and your energy is directed towards enjoying important relationships and moments, but with the underlying knowledge that it will soon be gone.

JUNODEF was formed in Sweden in 2015 when Karin and Tyra’s previous band split. A few months later, they met Norea and Rode, creating the band’s fully developed sound. Now residing in London, JUNODEF have gone from strength to strength, supporting the likes of Blonde Redhead

‘Heights’ continues the band’s quest to question and change how gender and sexuality can be perceived in the music industry. JUNODEF work with organisations such as Girls Rock London to get young girls, trans and non-binary people to play music.

JUNODEF will be throwing a special release party on 5th December at The Windmill in Brixton. The evening will feature sets from Solomon OB, Diane Assiri and holly Mullineaux (Goat Girl). More information on the event can be found here.
