Junior Mesa Shares New Video

Junior Mesa shares a new, self-directed video. The visual for “Risen Up,” one of the standout tracks on his recently-released EP Cirque Du Freak, mirrors the song’s whimsical energy as it follows Junior and his partner-in-crime on a dreamy, Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas-inspired journey through the barren landscape of Joshua Tree. The new video marks the latest visual offering from the Junior’s new project, following “What’s Enough pt. 2,” “Pushing Away,” “Paranoia Dreams” and “Listen Close.” Earlier this week, Junior also announced an extensive run of North American tour dates alongside Dublin-based band Inhaler kicking off in March 2022, including back-to-back shows in NYC and LA.

Cirque Du Freak is a 5-track project which builds and details a funky and whimsical psych-pop universe of Junior’s own creation, informed by life experiences both harrowing and transformational including his struggles with epilepsy that negatively impacted his ability to make music. The creation of the EP served as a means for Junior to confront that period of his life, manifesting his lack of control through a freak show of various characters including clowns and a sinister ringmaster.
