Burning Up for Juce's New Track
One of the most promising groups to emerge this year is London trio Juce, exploding on to the scene this past March with the funky song, "Call You Out." The track's video looked as if it'd been discovered in a pile of old VHS tapes at a blowout garage sale, with early '90s references pulled straight from the Spice Girls -- a look that, in our opinion, will never grow tired. Still looking to the past for inspiration, Juce's latest release, "Burning Up," travels back a few more decades, revisiting the glimmering disco days of Donna Summer with bright, soulful vocals evocative of Gossip's Beth Ditto and, not to mention, their Madonna throw-back title. "My city is burning up, burning up -- burning like the summer sun," they sing, offering the ultimate soundtrack to a warm July afternoon. Ready your hot pants and lace up your roller skates -- boys, I'm talking to you.
