Fresh of the release of their new single “Sugar,” which you can listen to here, I sat down with the Ben and Rami from the band Juice to discuss their upcoming plans, their new project, and what it’s been like working on it all while gaining popularity. Their new EP “Workin’ on Lovin’” you is set to release June 15th!

Of course, I had to ask them how the guys of Juice formed. Ben, “friends first who shared a passion for music” and much like so many other bands before them, they formed in college and entered into a battle of the band's competition. After doing this they began nurturing their talents and pooling together their varied instrumental abilities and their musical journey began.

As per usual, I had to ask who their biggest musical influences are. When listening to their new project, which has yet to be released, there is a definite R&B and jazz feel to it. When I asked Ben and Rami what their influences were for their new songs, and just, in general, their responses seemed to fit in perfectly with the feel of their new stuff. Rami and Ben both had varied inspirations that included R&B and Jazz. However, they varied in their specific choices, for example, Rami takes a lot of his inspiration from Deangelo, while Ben draws his influence from Stevie Wonder and the Beatles.

After discussing their musical influences, I wanted to move on to their real-world influences and talk about how they’ve grown since the release of “Coconut Girl.” I also asked how they think they’ve grown and if they’ve noticed a considerable difference in their creative process since then. Ben thought that “maturity as artists and growing together and going through new phases of life” was definitely a large part of how they’ve grown and that they’ve started “getting more concentrated”. He also pointed out that “being out of college is a big jump in life and now we’re pursuing music full time with new emotional experiences”

The band has been working on their newest project, “Workin’ on Lovin’” with producer Jonny K, Rami explained that working with Johnny has provided a “harder rock collaborative environment”. In this environment, the band is encouraged to get together and “Sit back and express ourselves and focus our energy”. In regard to their creative process, there was one thing that Rami thinks always rings true: “bass and drums together and you’ve got yourself a song”.

The day before the release of their new EP “Workin’ on Lovin’” the guys will be playing at Mercury Lounge in New York. This is anticipated by the band to be a great night full of good energy since the last time they performed at this venue it was a sold-out crowd. Since it’s the day before the release of the EP Ben and Rami are positive they’ll be playing some new songs from the EP at the show.

In 2017 we had to say goodbye to one of the best websites to ever roam the internet: Vine. In case you have been living under a rock since 2013, Vine was -(sad face)- a website and app that took the internet and the app store by storm in Winter 2013. It contained 6-second videos that were mostly comedy- but there were other genres including music, sports, cool tricks and different trends. Vine stars would get together and plan out a vine and film it till they got it right.

It was owned by Twitter and it was shut down because of so many reasons; the viners were leaving and making money from Youtube, there was simply no money in it and Twitter wanted us to suffer.

There's been a ton of threads on Twitter of everyone's favorite vines so I thought I'd jump in and share some of my favorites. So without further ado, here are some quotes of vines that most vine fanatics would know.

5 Things To Do ~Before~ You Study Abroad

Take a breath.

13

Studying abroad is an amazing opportunity for a few college students out there. It's an experience many have sworn by as a turning point in their academic careers, and a time many memories were made. However, as you make the choice to study abroad, or as you prepare for your trip, remember there are points you should remember before you do so.

Now, I haven't studied abroad yet, but as I have been preparing I have been taking cues from friends and their experiences as I prepare for my own. As I wait, the date I leave is approaching quickly. It's easy to get lost in the whirlwind of preparing for the trip, and the dreams you have for it, so these are a few points I hope remember:

1. Appreciate the people who helped you along the way.

More than likely, you haven't planned this all on your own. You've had help and support from teachers, family and friends. Take the time to appreciate them, and what they have done to get you to have this amazing experience. You'll be glad you did, and so will they.

2. Be realistic

It's easy to get lost in the dream of going to a new country for an extended period of time, especially if you've never done anything like it before. No doubt, the experience will be great, but make sure to be realistic in your dreams for the experience. That way it will live up to your expectations, and anything above and beyond will be icing on the cake.

3. Remember why you're doing this.

It's self-explanatory, but when you study abroad, make sure you actually study. The reason you're doing this is more than just seeing the world, but to learn from it. Keep up with your studies so you gain all the more from the experience.

4. With that said, remember to have fun.

Don't stay in your room all day either. It will probably be a while before you have another opportunity like this, so explore when you can. Spend weekends with classmates traveling the area, and seeing the places you know from your textbook.

5. Try new things.

Try new foods, explore new cultures, and get out of the bubble of familiarity you've always known. There's a big world out there, and it's time to see it.
