Ever since they have been branding their sound on the UK’s rear end with loud gigs and exciting tracks guaranteed to get you up and throwing yourself about to their in-your-face beats and heavy riffs.

Covid Tapes EP got 2 glistening nationwide reviews published – 8/10 from Powerplay Magazine and 7/10, another BBC Introducing Track of the week for single ‘I Don’t Mind’. and a Arthouse Presents Live(Stream) showcase at Jersey’s largest venue.

As Guested on;

“Hot Juice are a band that bring huge energy when they perform live. On top of that, their powerful sound translates into the recording studio and their debut album “This Is What You Want” is an absolute smash. They make it very easy for me to support them through BBC Music Introducing and as if that wasn’t enough – they are really sound guys as well.” Tim Hunter, BBC Music Introducing in the Channel Islands.
