Left to her own devices, Julia Easterlin is easily a one-woman band. Aided by a tight live rhythm section, her songs — based around complex vocal loops and effects — take on a new life that further explores her rich history as a student, musician, and curious explorer of the world. While the technical aspects of her performances can feel like a novelty at first, the complexity of her rhythms, melodies, and songwriting quickly shine through and transport the listener to a much deeper place. Fans of Bjork, St. Vincent, or Tune-Yards will likely find their new favorite songwriter and performer in Easterlin.
