TUNE Jula - Leave
JULA’s sound is influenced by her appreciation and studies of Jazz music, as well as the music of Björk, Muse and Destiny’s Child. Imagine a mix of Daughter and Roisin Murphy with the downcast pop-hues of Lykke Li, this would be one way to describe the sound of JULA.
‘Leave’ features an unpretentious, minimal instrumental that allows JULA’s warm, controlled voice to shine through and creating a cool, open and musing ambience. When asked about the theme of her debut single JULA says: “I remember when I first had the idea for this song; I was at home with my loop station just improvising, making soundscapes. It was a cold day and as I sat there, this song just came to me. It’s about a feeling I sometimes have, a weight that I carry with me. A feeling that overwhelms me, which I can not escape. I wallow in it for a while, cover myself in it and then, all of a sudden, it’s gone. It’s a very lonely feeling, very dark, but it’s not necessarily negative, it’s a part of me I have learned to accept and even appreciate sometimes; without the low, I can’t experience the high. That is what ‘Leave’ is about.”
