Longtime ATG heartthrob José González and his trio of Swedish indie-folk crooners Junip are set to release their follow-up to 2010’s criminally under-appreciated Fields in May of this year, and today the band shared the first track off the self-titled sophomore effort. “Line Of Fire” finds the band hitting their stride, complete with González’s unmistakable voice, expertly layered acoustic guitars, and a slow-building crescendo with each verse that reaches DEFCON 1 (or as high-emotion as an indie-folk track can get), resulting in one hell of a first single. Gonzalez and co. seemed to have figured out what real music should sound like, and have done just that. Grab “Line Of Fire” below, and get ready for the album, due out in May on Mute.
