Juicebox Vol 1, Side H, Track 1: “Damage” by University Drive.
For their Juicebox debut, University Drive performs “Damage” off of their new album Clear. This track explores the effects of going through a life changing crisis, questioning the nature of reality and the world around you. “I started writing ‘Damage’ right before my mom passed. Then right after it happened I finished adding some of the final lyrics and melodies,” Ed explains. “There’s a lot in the song. It’s not really about any specific situation or thing. It is more of a snapshot of my headspace at that time.”
“Damage” gives us a glimpse into the darker tones of Clear as well as a new approach to recording for University Drive. Angelo and Scott both serve as backup harmonies on both guitar and vocals, allowing for more intricate melodies throughout the songs. This enables the whole band to paint a picture centered around Ed’s lyrics, without getting overly complicated or convoluted.
