FRESH: ‘Oyster Love’ (EP) – Juno Frances

Juno Francis release their debut EP, “Oyster Love”

Juno Francis, who we featured last year with their debut single, “Dance With Me“, are back with their first full length EP, “Oyster Love”. Jacob Fagerstål and Angelica Ranåsen forge a eclectic mix of psychedelic pop with a 60’s twist and an 80’s synth tweek. “Oyster Love” comes off the back of their standalone singles, “Queen’s Anthem” and “So High” and offers four brand new compositions to delicately enhance your listening features as well as your mind.

“Oyster Love” begins with the very 60’s trippy “Follow The Stars” as Juno Francis introduce you to themselves and their roles, one the Queen of diamonds, the other, the jack of hearts. Some strange and glittering synths pervade the second half of the song as the music consumes the vocals. The title track of the EP has a much more jovial appeal to it as well as a catchy soundtrack that never offends or outstays its welcome.

“Fight” continues the infuriating beat and words that bury themselves deep in your consciousness. This is very addictive and not because you necessarily want to, but captures you unaware. The fourth and final track, “I Wanna Run Away”, is simply stunning, fast moving early 80’s electro-pop meets mid-80’s synthwave to carry you off into the distance with assured confidence.

Here are four new, completely brilliant compositions from Juno Francis to entice you yet deeper into their world. And what a world to be invited in to. Juno Francis are building a solid following with their previous three songs and now four all at once to keep their fans satisfield but , more importanly, capture new and inviting prospectives to sample their very delectable sounds.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
