Junior Varsity Finally Releases Unforgettable Debut Track, "Cold Blood"

Quick Thoughts: There’s something about artists who are willing to take chances with their music. It’s an incredible quality, one that will stop you right in your tracks. Such is the case for the LA-based duo, Junior Varsity, who released their debut single, Cold Blood, in early April. Although this is the act’s first track on streaming services, it comes after years of waiting. Junior Varsity achieved some internet fame in 2019, after a run of free concerts garnered mass attention. And some two years later, enter Cold Blood. The song, an alternative rock gem, is infused with elements of punk and hip-hop, and has irreverent lyrics sprinkled throughout. It is wonderfully eccentric: well-crafted and unique. There’s some real ‘fuck you’ energy to this track, in the best possible way. Whether you’ve been following Junior Varsity since 2019 or you’re hearing of them for the first time today, Cold Blood is well worth the wait. This is one of the best songs of the year.
