Juno Francis is the supposed »lovechild of a 60s gentleman and an 80s lady,« and as plausible as that sounds, it also means that Juno Francis does not exist. At least not as a natural person with a passport and tax ID number. As a vision and sound, however, Juno Francis does exist. Behind all this is a duo whose self-description hits the mark: Juno Francis bring together warm, fuzzy psychedelics with grand, neon-coloured gestures. Still, their releases – such as their latest single »Sunday Morning« on Italians Do It Better with producer Alejandro Molinari – don’t sound retro at all, but rather like a contemporary synthesis of familiar, prevailing moods. How they are set in motion and their interplay is the real art here. Deathly sad one moment, overjoyed the next.
In 2021, Juno Francis are receiving a grant of 4,000 euros for the mixing and mastering of an LP as well as for comprehensive promotional measures.
