Junior Boys release ‘Big Black Coat Remix’

Junior Boys release 'Big Black Coat' Robert Hood Remix, as well as new video. Junior Boys' tour with Jessy Lanza, starts March 10th

After the release of their album Big Black Coat, Junior Boys have today shared a remix of its title track by techno legend Robert Hood. They have also simultaneously released a video for the original track, directed by Tim Saccenti.

Approaching the track with his staple minimalist techno touch, Robert Hood stretches out the original by almost two minutes, carefully deconstructing the original material and rebuilding it as an essential industrial club anthem. The remix will also be available soon as a limted 12” on Jialong, the imprint run by Dan Snaith (Caribou/Daphni).

Speaking on the concept for the video, Saccenti says: “It evolved from mine and the band’s mutual love for early analog video and experimental film art, industrial techno, and the audio/visual performances of seminal DIY electronic band The Severed Heads. Following the beauty and driving movement of the track, I wanted to create a piece of emotional innocence to run through the grinder of distortion.”

Junior Boys are currently touring the EU with Jessy Lanza, whose new single ‘It Means I Love You’ was produced by Greenspan.
