Can you tell our readers a little about yourselves and your music?

How was your band formed and why do you choose to call it “Galaxy Juice Band”?
The band was formed in 2013 but we’ve been friends since high school. We started playing music together because of our rock influences and since then we began exploring more and more. After graduation we took the decision of producing our first album “Crystal Dunes” just to put a small drop in the ocean of music. However, the feedback we got exceeded our expectations and made an impact on a local level.
Galaxy Juice, the name was chosen because of our openness to play any number of musical styles. For example, we played rock, electronic, synth pop, jazz, psychedelic rock, ambient and Middle Eastern music. The amount of styles is infinite so we refer to this as “the galaxy”. And mixing them produces our sound which is “the juice”.
How would you describe your music?
A mixture of dreamy fusion of relaxing danceable beats in both futuristic and ancient spaces
How is the current music scene in Kuwait? Have you been performing live in the past years?

Yes, we’ve performed a couple of times in Kuwait and around the region.
Do you guys maintain a collaborative songwriting process?
Yes, we do. There’s no strict protocol we follow, basically we jam and have fun with our instruments. If someone has an idea, we record it and everyone collaborates to build up the song with different ideas.
What was the production process like for your new album?
It was long and stressful like any other album because we try to please each member of the band so everyone has to be happy with the final results. However, we are learning more and more about music production as years go by.
In what ways are your new songs and previous releases similar? How are they different?
They are similar in a way that they have the essence and feel of galaxy juice and they are different in the approach and the direction. we have a concept for each project and that includes the way we perceive and there is a story behind the project. So that differentiates between them all.
