Gothenburg, Sweden-based indie rock outfit Junip was formed in late 90â€™s by singer-songwriter Jose Gonzalez. The trio, which consists of Gonzalez on guitar and vocals, drummer Elias Araya and keyboard player Tobia Winterkorn, crafts dark, moody, indie folk in the vein of their founder. Junip released its debut 7-inch in 2000 on their own Kakafoni imprint. Araya then spent nearly five years studying art in Norway and Finland, while Winterkorn worked as a teacher and Gonzalez launched a successful solo career. The trio regrouped for the Black Refuge EP in 2006 and began writing and recording in earnest after Gonzalez finished promoting his album In Our Nature in 2007. The full-length result, Fields, arrived in 2010 on Mute Records. ~ James Christopher MongerPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
