Until June

Until June

Until June’s self-titled release opens with a track titled “Sleepless”. Josh Ballard’s quivery vocal on it makes you think of the Bee Gee’s before they got sucked into the disco craze. Josh also plays keyboards in the band, and his brother, Dan, is its guitarist. Daniel Dempsey is the trio’s drummer. Every song this act plays is oddly sad and beautiful at the same time. One song is even called “The Saddest Song”, although there are nine others on the disc fighting for that strange honor. There is also an innocence to Until June love songs that hearkens back to the time when love really meant love, not sex. Listening to Until June, it is easy to get swept up in this fine group’s powerfully emotional melodies.
