Julia Holter - 'World'

Stripped-back like a hymn, and not for everyone

NME Default article image
The LA-based multi-instrumentalist is definitely not for everyone. But who can deny that lyrics such as "every day my eyes are older" are genius? 'World' is completely stripped back, like a hymn. Her voice is godly and the kind of oddity that would work perfectly as a vocal accompaniment on the new These New Puritans record.
