Listen: Julia Holter – ‘So Humble The Afternoon’

It's a hazy listen...

Julia Holter has shared her song 'So Humble The Afternoon' in full.

The piece was initially released back in 2018, part of the Adult Swim singles club, and has now been rewarded with a full digital release.

It's a wonderful listen, too, with the hazy atmosphere lending some much-needed calm to our week.

Julia's voice – as ever – is heavenly, and those comforting aspects seem to be heightened and accelerated by the warmth of the arrangement.

She comments…

"In ‘So Humble the Afternoon’, recorded a few years back, I was immersing myself in the woozy warmth of the synth and mellotron timbres. and they were a comforting foundation for me to sing over, to soften the harshness of the afternoon which always feels to me like the least introspective and most alienating part of the day."

"And something about the hazy malaise of this song seems to me to suit this endlessly apocalyptic time."

Tune in now.
