All Music Guide:

Gothenburg, Sweden-based indie rock outfit Junip was formed in late '90s by singer/songwriter José González. The trio, which consists of González on guitar and vocals, drummer Elias Araya, and keyboard player Tobia Winterkorn, crafts dark, moody, indie folk in the vein of their founder. Junip released their debut 7" in 2000 on their own Kakafoni imprint. Araya then spent nearly five years studying art in Norway and Finland, while Winterkorn worked as a teacher and González launched a successful solo career. The trio regrouped for the Black Refuge EP in 2006 and began writing and recording in earnest after González finished promoting his album In Our Nature in 2007. The full-length result, Fields, arrived in 2010 on Mute Records. For 2013's more polished and more experimental self-titled second album, the trio recorded in their practice space with help from co-producer Don Alsterberg.
