There are at least six artists with this name: 1. A Swedish indie group 2. A solo project of musician Jacob Janoram 3. An English pop group 4.
A South African rapper 5. A Dutch musician 6. K-pop girl group 1. Swedish group jj emerged in 2009 on the Gothenburg-based record label Sincerely Yours with a particularly gratifying take on the musical preoccupations common to much of the label's roster, which includes its founders, The Tough Alliance.
jj are distributed in North America by Secretly Canadian. The band consists of Joakim Benon and Elin Kastlander. jj's take on neo-Balearic indie pop filters Air France's tropical haze, The Tough Alliance's penchant for slyly irreverent appropriation, and The Honeydrips' fragile twee pop melodicism into a beguilingly lush, gently electronic style, reminiscent of prime Saint Etienne with a smoother, beachier sheen. jj also share their label mates' propensity for mystery, favoring an artfully enigmatic presentation.Make JJ Playlist
