The band Juice has an incredible musical range, and their latest releases show it. The group just dropped their latest EP, called Workin’ On Lovin’, which features emotional moments like the ballad “Heartbreak In a Box,” and the infectious, soulful, and melodic single, “Sugar.”
The Boston-based group consists of seven talented performers: Ben Stevens (lead vocal), Michael Ricciardulli (guitar), Rami El-Abidin (bass), Christian Rose (violin, vocals), Kamau Burton (acoustic guitar, vocals), Daniel Moss (guitar), and Miles Clyatt (drums). All of the guys’ talents blend together as a completely unique sound in a diverse-sounding EP.
In a press statement about this new 2018 release, guitarist Michael Ricciardulli said, “Workin’ on Lovin‘ is an acknowledgment that the traditional coming of age story has been more of a journey for us, an acknowledgment that I’m not there yet, but I’m workin’ on it. It’s still youthful and it’s still vibrant, but it possesses a new sense, an awareness, quietly reposed, this steady stream of sanguine, the true ability to reflect upon a current state of beauty, at times enveloped in the blue. It’s a high-speed collision between knowledge and understanding and most of all it’s a portrait of love, one shaped by experience.”
