Julia Holter - "Maxim's I"

Videostheneedledrop1 Comment

The new track from experimental musician Julia Holter is something of a marriage between the forlorn "World" and the lush "In the Green Wild," the first two singles taken from her upcoming LP Loud City Song. "Maxim's I" is a multi-phased song that begins ominously with sparse instrumentation and an overwhelming graininess, but this ultimately gives way to arrangements that have an expansive, almost fantastical post-rock quality to them. The song is accompanied by a fittingly grainy music video comprised of in-studio photographic stills.

Loud City Song is due for release on August 20 via Domino Records.

Also, Julia recently dropped a music video for the track "Our Sorrows," which is a cut that appeared on her previous album. Watch below:
