Julia Holter - "In the Green Wild"

New MusictheneedledropComment

Julia Holter has a dropped a new song and video for her upcoming album Loud City Song, which is due out on August 20th via Domino. “In the Green Wild” is the second glimpse Julia has given us of the LP--the first was the somber and spacious “World” back in May.

This second single is a considerably more upbeat affair. Here, Julia’s vocals are more whimsical than wearied, and the instrumentation is not nearly as sparse as it was in “World.”  The sly upright bass and exotic percussion that the track opens with give way to an epic, string-kissed second half that manages to be simultaneously explosive and ethereal. Enjoy!
