Juveniles - Through The Night

Single review by KevW


It's been a decent year or two of steady build-up for French band Juveniles, with a couple of releases on the super cool Kitsune label to their name and a couple of gigs in London under their belts to begin to impregnate themselves on the minds of the British (well south-east English anyway) public. Capitalizing on the publicity these recent live shows have hopefully gained them, they're releasing a new EP this week, with the lead track being the kind of slightly retro electro-pop that we've come to associate with acts linked to the Kitsune family, although this release it being taken care of by AZ/Universal, so maybe a little extra clout is behind them now?

Well in 'Through The Night' they have a song that's maybe not quite 'pop' enough to set the charts on fire, but it is a good listen with what you'd expect to be a reasonably wide appeal, heading towards the more 'band' based end of the synth-pop spectrum. Things are reasonably routine but it does come equipped with a decent chorus that should let the memory linger a little longer than some. So a pleasant enough offering, but as to whether or not they're headed for future stardom? More music will need to be made and for now the jury's still out.
