Pop boy band UnionJ are back with new music and now as a duo. The combo of Jaymi Hensley and JJ Hamblett have returned with ‘Paralysed’, a vocally bold pop power ballad that is complete with all the right nuances from the building piano momentum to the drama of strings and of course the angst and longing of lost love. Many a broken heart will be drawn in for repeated plays until the tear stained pillows have dried.
The group has gone through some drama of its own having originally started as a 5 piece traditional boy band. Now older and much more seasoned, the 2 remaining J’s potentially stand to see even more success as a duo. Duo male vocalists aren’t heavily represented in music and this could be a combination listeners will respond to and will be eager to get behind.
And as a half gay, half straight pairing, this dynamic definitely presents something unique and appealing. It’d be great to even see a future collaboration between the guys and Halsey or Hayley Kiyoko. But whatever comes their way, Union J may have lost members but it looks like they’ve gained presence.
