Discovery: Julia and the Basement Tapes

Over this festive period, we’ve got a chance to look back at some of the artists we got to hear this year but never shared with you. Next up is Swedish indie pop act Julia and the Basement Tapes with their track Drifting.

By Graeme Smith

Drifting has a steady bass and big urgent chorus that really captures my ear. Julia has a breathy, emotive vocal style which makes you feel as if she is singing directly to you. It’s a quality that comes naturally and yet is so rare. It really makes Drifting a song you will keep coming back to. Check it out below.
