julie have been steadily gaining recognition since their impactful 2020 release “flutter.” A series of critically acclaimed singles and their pushing daisies EP further solidified their position in the indie rock scene. Their upward trajectory earned them a spot on the “15 Rising Artists to Watch in 2024” list. The band is set to support notable artists like Alex G and Faye Webster on tour soon.

The newest single, “clairbourne practice,” comes after “catalogue” and exhibits a robust ’90s shoegaze influence, reminiscent of bands like Hum and Deftones, particularly their track “Be Quiet and Drive (Far Away).” The song features dark, dynamic elements that create an intense listening experience.

In a statement, the band described the track: “It’s two voices conflicting and crashing with each other, unable to understand each other. The way the vocals are layered on top of each other in this song is maybe the most androgynous on the album. But it’s two people saying the same thing and still not hearing each other. We definitely wanted the loud and quiet parts to be polar opposites. Sweet, then destructive, and coming back and repeating the cycle.”
