Band name changes can be a tricky task to pull off (see The Morning Benders, Killer Mike, Saint Pepsi), but the artists formerly known as Dale Earnhardt Jr Jr haven’t lost a step with their new name. Now known as JR JR, the Detroit band already unleashed a strong slice of indie pop in “Gone” and reach even higher heights on new single “As Time Goes”. The three and a half minute cut amps up the band’s penchant for synth with even spacier electronic sound and showcases one of JR JR’s catchiest tracks to date. “As Time Goes” even nods to the outfits’s growth with lyrics that touch on maturation that passes as days go by because “no one can truly stay the same.”
