Jung People (/'j??/yuung) is a Canadian instrumental musical group from Calgary, AB. known for their dynamic blend of Post-rock, prog, and ambient minimalism.
Founded in late 2010 by childhood friends Bryan Buss and Jordan Bassi after attending the Musicians Institute in Hollywood, CA. Although instrumental, their idealisms and morals regarding Animal Liberation and Social Awareness are displayed heavily into their album art, song titles, T-shirt designs and online presence. Despite the bands inherent punk-rock spirit, the music plays in contrast with its melodic and positive nature.
By 2013 Jung People had played 90+ gigs across Canada and opened for artists such as Crystal Castles, Olafur Arnolds, BRAIDS, Rene Hell and Pick A Piper along with playing 2013’s SXSW in Austin, TX and Canadian Music Week in Toronto, CA.
Jung People have recently recorded their first full length studio album entitled 'Gold Bristle' produced by Howard Bilerman (Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Arcade Fire, Bell Orchestre).
Gold Bristle will be available on November 30th, 2013 , the format being a 2XLP Gatefold Vinyl bound by a 26 page Illustrated Story Book assembled by the bands and their friends hands.
