Describing their sound as “too straight for funk, too groovy for indie rock and too sweaty for pop”, Bluejuice sport an aggressive, party-oriented mix of rock, hip-hop, electro and dance, all delicately laced with a winning tongue-in-cheek attitude and spirit.
Since their formation almost nine years ago, Bluejuice have received countless nominations and awards for their musical efforts, including Best Emerging Artist in the 2007 Australian Music Prize for their debut album Problems, which further went on to pick up a four out of five rating from Australia’s Rolling Stone magazine. It also received countless hours of airplay on Triple J, with their single ‘Vitriol’ being the highest played song for almost a year and going on to be voted number 11 in the Triple J Hottest 100 for 2007. Few would have predicted such great success for five twenty something year olds who started out as a self-professed “jazzy instrumental band playing 3 hour long funk dirges at the pub every Sunday”.
