New Music: Julie Hicklin – It Should Be Me

Julie Hicklin is an electronic pop artist based in London who first caught my attention back in September through her moody track Dog Solitude. Now she’s back with a new one. It’s called It Should Be Me.

It Should Be Me is a collaboration, with instrumentals provided by fellow artist Fay. It’s over this textured soundscape that Julie tells her story of tragic love. Equal parts saddening and seductive, it’s a track that will find its way straight to your heart.

With Dog Solitude, I compared Julie’s sound to Goldfrapp and that comparison holds up here too. It’s such a powerful but underused sound. I’m glad Julie has embraced it and made it her own.
