Featuring Carl Cox on Saxophone, “My Racing Heart” is an upbeat number inspired by the work of Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis that leans heavily into funk and is 100% danceable. Written during the height of the pandemic, vocalist John Helmuth leaned on Crozet as a creative outlet and a way to tackle severe anxiety. “Lyrically, this was one of those songs that kind of wrote itself once I started getting into it. I hope people can relate to the feelings the lyrics speak of.” – John Helmuth. “My Racing Heart” is streaming now at Chorus.FM and will be available on digital platforms on Friday, June 17th. It’s the second single from their upcoming album, Suburbia, that will be released on Friday, July 1st.

JUNIOR VARSITY UNVEIL MOVING NEW VIDEO FOR ‘SHARE UR FEELINGS’
“Share Ur Feelings” is the perfect score for the compelling visual which examines the complexities of human connection and emotions attached to the dynamic relationships between two or more people. In the video, each person either has a red or a green line through them while interacting with another person. The red line signifies a person is unwanted in the situation by the person who has a green line. And two people interacting that both have green lines are clearly interested in each other. It’s the kind of thought-provoking concept meant to make you feel something that Junior Varsity has successfully achieved with everything they put out.
