Juno Star is an up and coming singer-songwriter from New York City who has collaborated with LA-based producer KOIL for his most recent release “Love Me Touch Me”.
This song was inspired by Juno’s attraction to harmful relationships at seventeen years old and his performance is a beautiful expression of the pain, confusion, and desperation he felt at this time in his life.
The song begins and we are instantly hooked by Juno’s captivating voice, reciting powerful lyrics which immediately grab the listener’s focus.
“Love Me Touch Me” buries deep down into the listener, both musically and lyrically, exposing fragile and tender emotions, that many of us will associate with.
The lyrics are authentic and impactful, such as; “sometimes I crawl up in a ball and pretend to die” performed with a syncopated rhythm which induces potent emotions in the listener.
An unrelenting synth clap propels the song forward as we are immersed in a soundscape of layered synths and reverbed vocals, as Juno begs; “Love me love me love me please”.
Juno holds a strong vocal presence which is alluring, charismatic, yet unmistakeably emotional.
He speaks in many parts of this performance and it feels like a poetic reading of a journal, performed to music, revealing a past heartache, a precious wound, which is fragile and vulnerable.
Although the lyrics are describing a period of distress, pain and turmoil, the music feels hopeful and transformational, confidence shining through.
“Touch Me Love Me” has all the best elements of a great pop song, with a groove-driven, upbeat rhythm and layered synths with reverbed vocals, this song is totally magnetic and will stay with you for hours after.
Juno is a rising star, who is prepared to take the world by storm with his music. He has released three singles so far this year, with two more to come, plus an EP release at the end of this year.
