tobi lou and the Juice
tobi lou is Chicago’s next superstar. His bright candor and ability to sneak heavy meanings into stunning melodies makes him one of the city’s most exciting new artists moving music forward. His earlier EPs, 'tobi lou and the Moon' and 'tobi lou and the Loop' both focused on a single theme and delivered “happy+extra sad” raps with relative ease. But with his newest project, 'tobi lou and the Juice,' we get a more expansive and definitive project from lou, one that doubles down on his ability to bait-and-switch serious discussions. 'tobi lou and the Juice' is about youth and a loss of innocence in an era where childhood is already dying. tobi lou deploys double-meanings, lore, and the attractive dissonance of his booming percussion and silky melodies to ensure 'Juice' keeps us engaged and constantly questioning our surroundings. As his most developed project to date, 'Juice' is the perfect precursor to tobi lou’s upcoming album.
