It's been a while since Junior Astronomers released their lauded 'Dead Nostalgia' album. But nearly four years later, the band is back and ready to rock. Their new album, Body Language, showcases their intelligent indie rock and shows that the Charlotte-natives weren't just passing time in the years between records. As you can hear above, Body Language is a solid evolution, and is a sign that the band are ready for bigger things.
“This album, for me, is about growing up and still living in my hometown," Terrence Richard says. "I love it here and it definitely has its problems but the record is kind of my coming to terms with those problems and embracing them. It was written during an off time of reflection and the longest period of time we’ve spent home.
"We wanted to start the record with the last scene of sorts to get the listener instantly involved. Then the second song really starts to build the story. We really tried to build vibes with these songs and I hope the listeners enjoy them. Even though this is our second album, it feels like a first album because we really focused on making 11 songs that flow and compliment each other.
Junior Astronomers' Body Language is out June 9.
