This Los Angeles Folk Duo’s New Single Was Inspired by an Episode of Our Time Sensitive Podcast
Last week, the emerging Los Angeles folk duo Junaco released its latest single, “Weight of the World,” which they wrote after listening to Ep. 20 of our Time Sensitive podcast featuring fashion designer Jesse Kamm. (Pakistani singer Shahana Jaffer, who started the band three years ago with drummer Joey LaRosa, met Kamm when the designer spotted Jaffer on the street from her car, and pulled over to ask if she’d model for her summer 2019 campaign.) Kamm’s perspective on community, art, and intentionality resonated with the pair, who used the ideas as the foundation for their new song. We recently phoned Jaffer and LaRosa to learn more about how they developed the track. The two will release their second EP, Blue Room, in June.
