JOON is an electronic solo project from Maltese songwriter & producer Yasmin Kuymizakis. Her debut album 'Dream Again' was released on LA record label Italians Do It Better. The 12 cuts of glacial synth pop shimmer with positive affirmations, heralding a new star in the Italians Do It Better cosmos.
JOON is inspired by dream worlds, mysticism and the supernatural, from her ethereal vocals and celestial synths to her self-directed music videos that take cues from B-movie tropes. Her lyrics are peppered with messages of hope for her listeners, which glide around cushioned beats and woozy layers of electronic sound.
