Video: Junior Boys "Banana Ripple"
- Words: Glenn Jackson
The Canadian duo known as Junior Boys is in the midst of a North American tour to support their latest LP for Domino, It's All True, and have dropped this video for the colorful, nine-plus-minute diisco track "Banana Ripple." The combination of dripping ice sculptures, psychedelic images, and Requiem for a Dream-style close-ups on bizarre images are confusing to say the least, so we'll just chock it all up to symbolism and focus on soaking up the sun-kissed funk that radiates from the tune. You can check Junior Boys' remaining tour dates, which finds the pair joined by fellow Canadian Egyptrixx, below, along with the two remixes which appear on the just-released "Banana Ripple" 12" from the UK's 2 Bears (comprised of Raf Daddy and Joe Goddard) and Stay+.
