Jonquil is a young four-piece from Oxford, UK. Headed by falsetto frontman Hugo Manuel — who also happens to perform under the solo moniker Chad Valley — the quartet play the type of shimmery indie-rock that’s interlaced with pretty guitar noodling and coated with elements of Afro-pop, a la Vampire Weekend and Local Natives.

Jonquil’s latest EP, One Hundred Suns, is out on Dovecote Records. Their forthcoming full-length, Point of Go, drops in February 2012.
