I know I have the privilege of nice weather even in winter but if you need an artificial sunny day, "Keep Your Love On" feels like a warm spring breeze.
JUICYPEAR is a new artist but has this amazing polish already. I feel like this is such a great example of how chillwave music can be made more approachable to other genres too. The synths are stunning and don't overpower the indie pop style lyricism. The track is a sweet "see you soon" style love song. I'd give this track a solid 10/10
Being married is not always an easy task. You may have to stretch in ways you never thought you would and talk about emotions you never thought you had. But throughout the process of being in this relationship with each other you start to see your love growing for one another as you “use your words” to communicate and grow together. Keeping your love on for one another as you give each other space to grow and learn and be.
Like most of us, it probably remains to be seen whether or not JUICYPEAR needed 2020, but in hindsight, it’s pretty clear 2020 needed plenty of JUICYPEAR.
Amidst a season of societal heaviness, confusion and constraint, the husband-wife duo of Jacob and Jasmine Mayeda emerged out of nowhere (SoCal, actually) in the back-half of the year with a series of shimmery, soulful, power-pop tunes that delivered an essential dosage of levity and bliss to weary souls worldwide.
JUICYPEAR’s trio of sun-soaked, disco-tinged releases served almost as a virtual tour of the pair’s first year of marriage. Led by debut “Golden Sky,” celebrating the lovers’ new adventure and a song Neon Music described as “summer encapsulated,” followed by the relational highs and lows of their new life in “Rollercoaster” and most recently, embracing life’s sweeter moments in the groove-ballad “Caught Up.”
“It was a rough and weird year to start a band,” laughs Jasmine. “But it’s also redemptive to be able to bring music into the world that gave us something to look forward to and bring some joy. With 2021 now here, we’re both hopeful to bring more of those creative, inspiring moments through our music and the opportunities they help create.”
If an artist with only three singles under its belt is qualified for a signature sound, JUICYPEAR manages to stay on course with their latest synth-y, chillwave-inflected, indie-pop effort, “Keep Your Love On,” releasing February 2021.
“Being married is not always an easy task,” says Jasmine, reflecting on the inspiration behind the new single. “You may have to stretch in ways you never thought you would and talk about emotions you never thought you had. But throughout the process of being in this relationship with each other, you start to see your love growing for one another as you ‘use your words’ to communicate and grow together. Keeping your love on for one another as you give each other space to grow and learn and be.”
