Junip are often viewed as merely an extension of Jose Gonzalez' solo career.
Yet in reality, nothing could be further from the truth. A band in the true, genuine sense of the word, their live shows are a demonstration of communal musicianship, of a real, palpable sense of respect between each member.
Returning to the UK for a short flurry of live dates, Junip have decided to piece together a new video. Taken from the forthcoming EP of the same name, 'Walking Lightly' is a hypnotic, drone-led piece which fuses dense guitars with light flurries of harp notes and much else besides.
The video for the track was directed by Fredrik Egerstrand, and found Junip decamping to the woods of Jonsered, just outside Gothenburg.
Performing in the wilds of Scandinavia, Junip are surrounded only by nature and their dearest friends.
Watch it now.
