Jupimatoon - Take Your Time EP

While listening to NTW on DKFM yesterday I stumbled on a new band that immediately caught my attention. Their name is Jupimatoon, they come from Seattle, WA and they describe their music as a blend of electronic, ambient and dream pop. The duet of Anna Thompson and Eric Smith released a dazzling debut EP on February 2nd called 'Take Your Time'. It comprises five tracks full of resplendent synths accompanied by Anna's mesmerizing vocals. 'The Window' is the first single off the EP and the darker 'White Lightning' is a personal favourite, but the whole EP is absolutely worth listening to. 
You can stream 'Take Your Time' on Soundcloud as well as on iTunes, Amazon and Spotify.
