California-based husband and wife outfit JUICYPEAR have just unveiled a mesmerising new collaboration with fellow musician Haiva Ru, called ‘Island’.
The song treats listeners to a heady fusion of soul, pop and funky disco, resulting in a sound that is somehow both dreamy and uplifting at the same time.
“Oftentimes, when someone is described as an ‘island,’ there’s a negative connotation around it—like they’re choosing to be alone, isolated, and possibly misunderstood. In this song’s context, we meant it in the best possible way: a pursuit to become more ourselves; independent from what others think of, or want from us. We can be islands living in a peaceful oasis, paradise no matter the circumstance or situation. That peace is always available to us. And to you. We hope you’ll hear this song and experience it as a sonic tropical getaway”.
‘Island’ is not only the perfect song to end the summer season with, but it also has the potential to propel the duo’s name into the mainstream. If you love the track as much as we do, then you’ll be pleased to know that it’s been lifted from JUICYPEAR’s freshly-released debut album, which you can experience right here.
