AUDIO: Nu-Jaunt – “Life is A Trip”
Nu-Jaunt is the Chicago-based alternative R&B duo of Nate Barksdale and Justin Armonia. With post-punk and neo-soul sensibilities, Nu-Jaunt push musical boundaries with avant-garde self-awareness. Their lyrics encompass the sensationalism of trendy modernity, which effectively strips the self from authentic wonder. Music was never meant to be so stratified in the first place, and the duo work beautifully to dispel such pretenses as to venture sonic realms yet to be discovered. Love in its purest form is pursued through risk and challenge, which Nu-Jaunt envelop themselves in with a bow on top. Fellow artist HANDOFJADE makes a vocal appearance on “Jaunt, Park” as well. We hope there’s more to come from them soon.
