So this is Jejune, one of those poppy-emo bands that were either born or changed their sound in wake of the whole Promise Ring craze. Sure the uppity but mellow riffs are in full swing with the accompaniment of tag-team male/ female vocals -the later of being something to Jejune's advantage- but a lot of Junk overlaps into the category of bland alternative-rock. To at least give credit where it's due, Arabella's melancholy but soothing voice kills some of the monotony, giving some hope that Jejune will progress musically with their next few releases.
