It’s the time of year when it feels like winter will never end – but don’t despair because Lake Jons also known as, Jooel Jons, Mikko Pennanen and Jaska Stenroth, are here to remind us that sunnier times are ahead and that we all need to think ‘Positive.’
We’re long time fans of the Finnish indie-folk trio here at Ja Ja Ja. As well as including them in our Ones to Watch list for 2017, they are also Ja Ja Ja club night veterans, so we couldn’t be more excited for this tease of their debut album.
This is the first taste of new material since the Explode and Explore EPs released in 2016, and although it maintains their gorgeous harmonies and folk sensibilities, ‘Positive’ is the most pop we’ve heard them yet. They sure have a knack for writing a killer Beck-inspired hook and this sunshine-drenched track was made for barbecues by the fjord or summer festival sing-a-longs.
