Hello our name is June. We make groovy music filled with layers of harmony. Combining guitars with Mellotron, Farfisa and samples.
We love clever pop like Frank Ocean or Beyoncé as well as offbeat music like Sufjan Stevens. Not to mention classic funk by The Meters and Prince. We're currently writing and recording a new EP.
Pon Ki Pon is the first song recorded and mixed in our own studio. It's also the first June song without any electric guitars.
The song is about a friend moving on to a new stage in her life and the uncertainty this entails. The title is a riff on an old song by The Meters.
Released January 2014. Music and lyrics written and recorded by June. Produced by Joep de Bruijn. Trumpets played by our friend, the ever so gracious Bart van der List.
We recorded the Tantrums EP in Amsterdam with London producers John Mitchell and Ben Humphreys. The songs are about procastration, patience and calling out bigots hiding behind misinterpreted scripture.
Released June 2013. All music and lyrics by June. Produced and mixed by John Mitchell and Ben Humphreys. Recorded in Redbull Studios Amsterdam.
