Formerly known as Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr., JR JR are a playful Michigan-based duo consisting of Daniel Zott and Joshua Epstein who met while playing in other musical projects originating in Detroit back in 2010. The two combine stylistic elements of indie pop, electronic and synth into one seriously stacked sound. Their songs are heavy in fuzz distortion and lo-fi aesthetic steered by breathy dream-pop vocals that produce a bedroom rock vibe that’s both whimsical and ethereal. The duo has released countless EPs and singles since 2010 and in 2015, under their abbreviated new moniker, released their self-titled and third studio album on Warner Bros.
