Jaunt – Cue
When we spoke to Toronto-based experimental pop band Jaunt at the start of the year, they seemed poised for a big 2018. So far, so good: they played Exclaim! and Ticketfly’s Class of 2018 concert series in January, and now they’re set to release their second EP, Cue. The EP doesn’t drop until Friday (April 13), but you can enjoy it a few days early with our exclusive stream.(Exclaim!)
