Juveniles are a french “pop”-band as they’d like to describe themselves. They released their first EP titled “We Are Young” in 2011. They are signed to the label Kitsuné Music which also hold bands like Digitalism, La Roux, Simian Mobile Disco and many, many more. They’re also coming to Sweden in April, where they will be playing on Debaser in Malmö. I got the opportunity to interview them about their past, present and future.
