Lyrically, new single Travel Guide toys satirically with the advertising fantasy of a holiday offering an escape from your demons. 

The band commented: 

"'Travel Guide' explores the concept of holiday escapism and destructive tourism. For a short while you live a fantasy where your problems melt away. 

"But when you travel, you discover that your expectations are unrealistic: the beaches and the resorts aren't quite the treasure island you had imagined. It's fundamentally a sad concept. 

"You're so far from home, but you still can't escape your problems."


 Junodream are five friends who formed a band at school, but reunited after university. 

They spent an early year together in near isolation, which somehow foreshadowed what would follow in 2020. 

Their name is a mash-up of two musical influences: the Junovintage synth and the Pink Floyd b-side Julia Dream. 

From early favourite To The Moon through to their previous EP, 2019's Isn't It Lovely (To Be Alone), the band have amassed 5.1 million streams on Spotify alone.

Junodream play The Prince Albert Brighton, on 9th December 2021. CLICK HERE for tickets.
