Fans of achingly beautiful baroque chamber pop have reason to rejoice, as LA native Julia Holter brings her sweeping arrangements to Anson Rooms this month.
Holter’s 2015 release, Have You In My Wilderness was a delight from start to finish, brimming with enough ideas and melodies to bring your heartstrings to their knees.
Mixed metaphors aside, Holter is a unique and talented proposition, taking influence from the sun-drenched west coast pop of her homeland, melded to a truly European sense of the absurd, with jazzy instrumental flourishes. Add in a stubbornly experimental side to her song craft, and you have one of the more intriguing artists to emerge over the last 5 years or so.
Holter’s show at The Lantern earlier this year was a triumph, so expect to be swept under her spell whether you want to be or not.
Tickets are available here. Check out the video for ‘Feel You’ below.
