22 year-old Dallas, Texas born, New York dwelling Juliana Madrid has shared the cover track “Let Go” (Frou Frou), the first new song since her sophomore Afterlife EP release on Neon Gold Records.
Juliana “Jules” Madrid says: "Imogen Heap has been an inspiration to me for a while now, but I heard Let Go years ago in the movie Garden State and fell in love with it. There’s so much going on in the song which creates such a sick effect, but with my version I wanted to strip it back to the basic chords and cool ambient sounds. I didn’t want to go full acoustic guitar vibe, so you will be hearing some synth and a bit of omni chord and occasional bleep bloops. I wanted this to remain as epic as possible while still making it my own."
After releasing “Trackstar”, co-written with GRAMMY-nominated talents Benjamin Ruttner (of The Knocks), and Matthew Koma (Zedd, Carly Rae Jepsen, Shania Twain etc), she finally released the new collection of songs followed by a west coast tour supporting SAINT MOTEL and played her first festival performance at the sold out All Things Go Festivalalongside alt-fem legends Lana Del Rey, boygenius, MUNA, Ethel Cainetc.
After releasing her self-titled debut EP on Neon Gold Records in 2022, she returned this year with a more expansive, deeper sound on “Afterlife”, with lyrics “Hey! I’m not great but I might be alright. So kiss my perfect afterlife goodbye”. See “Jules” in her official music video HERE.
