Jugu | Rolling
Listen to this fantastic new single from Sydney’s Jugu, which is the alias of electronic pop vocalist Juliet Guterres. On the bio page of her official website she lists some of her influences as Little Dragon and Chvrches, and you can hear it. Her first E.P. “Getting Closer” was released at the end of 2010, but “Rolling” is her best track yet. It’s about a simple pleasure, finding release in motion: “You always roll when the times are tough / Sliding down / You like it best when the motion picks up, and the wind feels so cool.” The lead vocals are breathy and high-pitched, fitting the mood perfectly. Feels like this would be in the wheelhouse of fans of Saint Etienne and Rainbow Chan. — David D. Robbins Jr.
