The Key Studio Sessions: Ju-Taun

Philly by way of South Jersey six-piece Ju-Taun released a brand new single this week, and it rocks hard. The band’s sound blends soul, R&B, folk, 80’s rock and pop, and reggae, and their new single, “Let It Die,” hits them all. With a bluesy groove, arena rock feel, and soulful vocals akin to The Black Keys, “Let It Die” will make you reflexively rock back and forth to its beat. These six musicians are incredibly talented, and they bring all their power to the song. Catch Ju-Taun this Friday at the Hard Rock Cafe in Philadelphia, and listen to “Let It Die” here.

Ju-Taun’s take on “Strong” is as ethereal as London Grammar’s, with just enough members to harmonize and bring a bluesy/folksy ambiance to the track. Continue reading →
