This EP follows off Junius’ 2019 full-length Across The Borders. Junius, hits the road for a run of North American dates, starting May 13th in Washington, DC. As a treat for fans, Junius has shared the album track “Ain’t Gonna Let You Drown.”

Rearview Paradise features four new originals from Junius Meyvant, and a rework of “Carry On With Me” from Across The Borders. One of the songs on the EP, “Cherries Underground,” is a Junius Meyvant live staple recorded in-studio for the first time, and the others were tracked during the Across The Borders sessions at the renowned John Storyk designed Hljóðriti Studio on the outskirts of Reykjavik.

“Often when we get isolated, we drown in our own thoughts. Anxiety kicks in, and staring into the mirror you start seeing faults even a microscope can’t see. In these moments it’s good to have real friends nearby and within.” And in regards to the EP: “You waited through the credits and figured out half of the movie is left. Enjoy.”
