From the Archives: Junior Senior hot in the UK! (by 29. January 2003)

Junior Senior seem to be moving the UK: They are playlistet on BBC’s Radio 1, SBN, XFM to mention a few – and the media seem to pick up the band. First the funky mag Dazed & Confused issued a full page, and later 4 pages on the band – then Junior Senior got a great live review by NME, and the same cool music mag has dedicated a full page in colour to the band.

Labeled as “Hot New Band” and under the headline “Conquering the world with their Wham-meets-Motown sound: Danish electro-pop duo Junior Senior” the magazine brings a quite entertaining interview with the guys about… and Ronan Keating love for the band.

“Ronan’s right – Move Your Feet is a great song. It ping-pongs between Wham’s ‘Club Tropicana’, The Hives, Stardust’s ‘Music Sounds Better With You’, Michael Jackson, Duran Duran, Spandau Ballet, Dick Dale, and Motown’s greatest hits. The LP ‘D-D-Don’t Don’t Stop the Beat’ is even more eclectic- like a record shop dust-up between Fatboy Slim (who tried desperately to signe the band, having heard ‘Move Your Feet’ at last year’s Miami Wither Musc Conference) and the Avalanches.”

The British music webmag calls “Move Your Feet” 2003’s first perfect popsingle and rates the single with 10 out of 10. At the same site there’s a great review of the bands recent gig at The Metro in London(Jan 23rd 2003), that makes you more than keen on being there and witness it the next time:

“Squeezing into London’s tiny Metro club presents something of a challenge on most nights of the week, but tonight it’s virtually impossible. Despite the fact that Danish duo Junior Senior are yet to release any material in this country, the place is packed (and probably over its legal-capacity) on the strength of reputation and limited radio airplay of a killer pop single.”

“By the time criminally addictive current single ‘Move Your Feet’, explodes, the evening has taken on the atmosphere of a private party…”

And Radio 1 has picked up the song as well. They are now playlistet on UK’s biggest radio station, after DJ and host Jo Whiley picked the song as “Jo’s Pet Song” (=record of the week).
