South Jersey six-piece JuTaun have had an interesting journey over the years. What began as a vocal R&B project in 1999 founded by brothers Jake and James Evans and Samoeun Cheng has since flowered into a full-fledged rock band. The group members quit their day jobs in 2003 to dedicate themselves to music, and it shows. Their newest video for the track “Let It Die” is an incredibly tight live performance that showcases the group’s virtuosity.

PREMIERE: Nothing’s “The Rites of Love and Death” Video

This unreleased track is an inticing harbinger of what’s to come in the EP Nothing plans to release early next year. Watch the clip above, download the title track from its Suns and Lovers EP below, and catch the band in concert this Friday at The Rotunda with YOU and Mueran Hermanos.
