Julia Holter

One of our 2012 Artists Of The Year, Julia Holter has now finished re-issuing her past albums and is ready to release a new one. Well, almost ready. She will release ‘Loud City Song’, on 19 Aug.

Her first album recorded in a proper studio, the first track to be released from it shows that she’s lost none of the subtlety borne of her previously limited recording means. If anything, ‘World’ is more stripped back, built up with layers of soft harmonies and a dusky lead vocal.

Other instruments quietly slip in underneath, almost unnoticed at around the halfway point, slowly transforming it into a forlorn show tune. Watch the video for ‘World’ here:
