Bobbi Arlo's first single of 2023 is an intense rock-fuelled electro-pop offering that's sure to blow you away.
Dublin-based alt-pop artist Bobbi Arlo has returned with a punchy, fiery new single 'JUNI' today.
With the help of producers Alex O'Keeffe and Adam Shanahan, the fast-rising talent has unveiled her first new banger in 14 months - and it was well worth the wait.
Armed with a new alter-ego, JUNI as a character is a force to be reckoned with. "JUNI are you lost, what's got into you?" Arlo asks before an explosive beat kicks in, fusing electronic, hard-hitting beats with a frenetic rock edge. "This time she's gone too far / No one is safe...JUNI we're so worried, are you stable? JUNI's got me scaring all the neighbours."
With a Jeykll and Hyde narrative at the core of the tune, there's hints of Doja Cat and Ashnikko meets PVRIS, LUNA AURA, Crawlers and Bambie Thug.
'JUNI' follows her only single of 2022, 'Parasite', and 2021 offerings 'FEVER THOUGHTS' and 'Feel It'. Since 2019's debut 'Berries', the performer has been steadily building a name for herself in the industry, gaining notable Irish radioplay and steady streaming numbers.
"ITS OUT MY GOD IT HAS BEEN SUCH A LONG 14 MONTHS OF NOT RELEASING," Bobbi Arlo posted to Instagram today. "I want to thank the team behind all this, who believed in me and made my vision of JUNI become a reality....I DON’T KNOW HOW YOU MADE ME FEEL POWERFUL AND BEAUTIFUL BUT YOU DID. I hope you love it as much as I do."
Arlo was named on RTÉ 2FM's 'Rising List' for 2021 alongside For Those I love, Shiv, The Clockworks, Shane Codd, Lea Heart, Monjola, Robert Grace, Gemma Dunleavy and Plantain Papi. Since then, she's booked some of the biggest gigs and respected venues nationwide, performing at Sea Sessions, Wild Roots, Whelan's, The Sound House, Rock Against Homelessness and more.
