Back after an extraordinary 2020, Slush Puppy shared his first new single of 2021 last week. “Juliette,” a track that tows the line between falling in love with someone outside of your traditional circle and understand all of the complicated intricacies of love, is just one of the artist’s singles that boasts both authentic lyrics and carefree production.
At just 19, the artist has a lot to say, but doesn’t overcomplicate the message of the track.
In a press release, Slush Puppy shared about the track, “‘Juliette’ is the classic high school story of outcast boy wanting the coolest girl, but only being in love with a glamorized version of her. We romanticize people and build them up in our head so much that we catch feelings without really knowing them. We only see people’s highlights on social media and it is so easy to think that the person you see online is an accurate representation irl. This song is about putting someone on a pedestal and becoming obsessed with the “best version” of them and basking in their perfection without really seeing any of their flaws.”
“Juliette” blurs the lines of alt-pop and rock, pulling in sounds that make the song relatable and genre-defying. Not only does he pair raw lyrics with a carefree sound, but Slush Puppy’s connection to real life and how the world actually is creates a track that leaves listeners eager for more.
Now out on Disruptor Records (home to The Chainsmokers, Christian French and more), Slush Puppy has an exciting future ahead and is quickly gaining traction on both social media and streaming platforms.
