Chris Parker from INDY WEEK described her vocals as follows "Frontwoman Junko's vocals range acrobatically from squealing highs to gruff muscularity."
JUNKO’s original songs can be described as J-rock and J-pop blended together. They are powerful, delicate, intricate and intriguing. She also covers J-pop/rock and anime themed songs, adding some American pop flavor to make them even sweeter!
JUNKO wrote an opening theme song for an online game "Backstage Pass" by Sake Visual. http://www.sakevisual.com/backstagepass/
