It’s often difficult to take that next step, that perilous comfort-zone shattering decision that, with any luck, will breathe new life into an artist’s music. For a veteran band such as JuTaun, however, these first steps have become second nature. The South Jersey-based trio announced the release of Back To Life EP, their first since the release of their tremendously successful stand alone single and music video “Who I Am” (which, no big deal, garnered 30,000 plays on YouTube). Although JuTaun has shown a rare knack for blending elements of various genres into their diverse sound, Back To Life already promises to be a departure from what we’ve come to expect.
The EP’s debut single “My Dear” kicks off with stirring, Gospel harmonies calling out reassuringly “Don’t cry no more, my dear/I’ll be at your door”. It’s a stunning track that should appeal to anyone who found solace in Beck’s Morning Phase. Like Beck’s Grammy-winning LP, “My Dear” features warm acoustic guitars and reverb soaked instrumentation that generates a cathartic serenity guaranteed to ease your worried mind.
