  • Sarah from Yuba City, CaOk, i really wish more people knew that this band existed, because they were fantastic. Clear Hearts Grey Flowers is an amazing record. it's a shame they broke up so soon after releasing it. But the lead singer, Jessicka, formed a new band soon after called Scarling. if you've never heard them please go check them out. they are very different from JOJ but still great. Strawberry Gashes is a great song and it means a lot to me and a few of my friends. love it! :)
  • Dakota from Okc, OkVery nice song (: I love JoJ
