Stereo Image - Red Nights

So you've heard and enjoyed the first two albums from Hamilton's Junior Boys -- perhaps you've even collected their EPs and early singles -- and now you're wondering what else you can get your grubby little hands on. Well, aside from a new Junior Boys album, this could perhaps be the next best thing. As I understand it, former Junior Boy Johnny Dark left the band before the release of their first album Last Exit, but he did not do so with any intentions of straying from the realm of electronic music. Instead he went on to release a solo EP of his own, before teaming up with vocalist San Serac to form Stereo Image. They have since signed to UK label KIN Records, and their first single "Red Nights" is out now. The sound is a kind of chilled out electro-soul vibe, not unlike Junior Boys, but certainly a bit different from Dark's own techno-heavy solo album. I'm looking forward to hearing more from this duo. (Thanks to Dave for the heads up!)
