For Junior Revolution music is emotion. It has its ups...it has its downs...with all that goes in between. Nearly ever day in one's life is spent flying through a myriad of emotions, so why should music be so different? Junior Revolution removes pretense in their approach to music, wanting to take you somewhere, but at the same time having no preconception of where they are taking you at all. For some, this may be disregarded as lack of forethought, but upon listening, one can't deny the exciting nature of such endeavors by a band.
The bands' most recent record, affectionately titled "It's A Process", can best be described as indie rock with blurred edges. It is melodic by definition but with an experimental indie twist. A mix between Jimmy Eat World and The Mars Volta, their insightful vocal arrangements adorn a continuously surging sonic background. The recording itself further paints a picture of their sound. From recording drums in an undisclosed tower location to mixing on the road in between venue stops, "It's A Process" bestows specks of their journey, both musically and in spirit. "It was a great environment in which to record" admits the band. "Not many groups are fortunate enough to say that they recorded their album in a 100 year old, 150 ft tower." Employing organ-like guitar tones, cavernous drum lines, overdubbed horn sections, and Queen-esque accappella vocal sections, "It's A Process" floats boundlessly through a myriad of styles, while never veering too far off course.
No stranger to spending their nights nestled in the womb of a tour van, the group has been weaving the interstates, winning over crowds as diverse as their sound. Showing no signs of slowing down, they've feverishly booked and promoted regional and national tours, footing the bill necessary to pursue a singular goal-to make music their life. Armed with a captivating sound, the group seamlessly translates their music into an engaging live show by blending their emotive lyrics with an energetic stage presence. Taking pride in being described as an act "worth-seeing", Junior Revolution plans to continue touring the US into 2008.
