Juniore’s “La Route” Sounds Like The 1966 Batmobile

French garage pop outfit Juniore are releasing a new, self-titled album, due out May 20 from Burger Records. In honor of the announcement, the band is sharing "La Route," a bonus track off the upcoming LP. "La Route" sounds just like it would feel to drive down a highway in 1960s France—there might be a raincloud or two ahead, who knows. (Either way, like Audrey Hepburn says, never carry an umbrella in Paris.)

"'La Route'—the road—is about the way everyday life can sometimes feel like a very long road trip," Juniore's Anna Jean told The FADER via email. "Something easy and something rough, it's full of surprises and unexpected events. The melody is guided by Sergio Leone's western themes with an urban twist, and translates a French girl's fantasy of riding cross-country in the 1966 bat-mobile. It's both cheerful and tormented, just as you can enjoy the landscape and wonder, 'Are we there yet?'“
