SUPPORT FOR ‘IN THE CLOUDS’
“Dubbed ‘In the Clouds’, the track does what it says on the tin and absolutely soars, delivering those big anthemic sadboi feels that fans of The Amity Affliction and Boston Manor will swoon over.”
Music Feeds (AUS)
“This release finds Bad Juju really amping up the epic aspect of their music. It’s hard, it’s fast but it also feels like it breaches the atmosphere with so much propulsion underneath.” – 4/5 stars
Dave Ruby Howe – triple j Unearthed (AUS)
“Bad Juju out here again showing off muscle and heart. It’s like someone at the gym who lifts big but also spots anyone who needs it and doesn’t hog the machines.” – 4/5 stars

Added to Spotify playlist ‘Rock Out.’
Following on from their critically praised EP ‘You’re Not Alone’, Melbourne-based alternative rock group Bad Juju have just revealed their sentimental new single ‘In the Clouds’ – produced, mixed, and mastered by Callan Orr at Avalanche Studios (Young Lions, Bad/Love, Stepson).
‘In the Clouds’ opens with colourful guitar chords and emphatic drums, as the diverse vocals of Russell Holland guide the melody through calm verses, floating with ghostlike atmosphere, before reaching an impassioned singalong chorus, textured and pervaded with maturity. A vigorous instrumental bridge leads into a heartfelt finale, as the song delivers a poignant message about chasing youthful imaginings.
Holland talks about the meaning behind ‘In the Clouds’:
“The song is about ignoring people who tell you your dreams are out of reach and pursuing your goals regardless of what others say about them.”
To coincide with the release, Bad Juju will be performing launch parties at The Workers Club in Melbourne and the Crown and Anchor in Adelaide. This continues on from a slew of shows around Australia, having shared stages with international juggernauts Mayday Parade (USA), along with local heavyweights Trophy Eyes, Young Lions, Dream On Dreamer, and Press Club. The band also performed showcases at BIGSOUND 2018.
Singles off ‘You’re Not Alone’ were widely embraced by Spotify, Apple Music, Pilerats, Depth Magazine, The AU Review, Hysteria Mag, HeavyMag, Tone Deaf, and Everyday Metal. Their tracks have also received support from Australian community radio stations 4ZZZ, 2RRR, and Radio Adelaide. They have been featured as a triple j Unearthed Feature Artist, and their single ‘Moving On’ was added to rotation on triple j. Its accompanying music video recieved support from MTV Upload and ABC’s rage.
In the coming, weeks Bad Juju will reveal an accompanying music video for ‘In the Clouds’.
