Jr. Jr.

With an ear for Brian Wilson-esque harmony, the irreverently named Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. swirl indie pop, folk, and electronic elements into one breezy package. Based in Detroit, Michigan, the duo of Joshua Epstein (also of the Silent Years) and Daniel Zott came together in 2009. Working out of a basement studio, the pair worked to create a sound that was danceable without sacrificing anything in the songwriting department, merging intricate and airy melodies with solid programmed beats and synth atmospherics. Their hard work bore fruit in 2010 when they released their debut EP, Horse Power, on Quite Scientific. That same year, the pair was also tapped to do a remix of Moby's "Wait for Me." In 2011, the duo released their full-length debut It's a Corporate World. In 2013, they returned with the Patterns EP before releasing their sophomore full-length The Speed of Things later that year. In 2015, Epstein and Zott decided to change the band's name to JR JR, even though they had the blessing of Dale Earnhardt, Jr. to keep it. Signed to Warner Bros., they released JR JR in September of 2015. ~ Gregory Heaney
