LA Music Review | Art, stories and advice
Fresh, catchy and totally relatable!
With an EP release and a string of new singles under their belt already, 2023 has been a thriving year for ambitious indie rock outfit Juniper Honey, but not a year without heartbreak. Their latest single, “Why Did You Call?” capitalizes on this sentiment. Through animated guitar pacing and a charismatic backbeat, the band depicts the transcendent feelings of optimism surrounding the all-too-relatable experience of a relationship slipping through the cracks.

Crafted with a myriad of distinctly resilient attitudes in mind…
this track explores the headspace of an artist rife with indecision, without ever taking itself too seriously. At its core, this track grapples with mindful observations of unrequited feelings grafted together with the hope inspired by a cryptic phone call, where the song receives its name.
Its sonic textures range from a boyishly carefree front presented by jangly pop-infused guitars, to driving strumming patterns and evocative power chords that confess lead singer Jake Hesse’s vocal frustration. While the situation establishes a darker context all but spelling the end of a relationship, it’s hard not to feel captivated by the hopelessly romantic band’s laid-back style and aspirant perspective.
Emerging indie rock group Juniper Honey’s new single is nothing if not accessible. Their colorful riffs and emotionally compelling lyrics speak for themselves as they continue to find support.
