Discovery: Julip

Julip is a San Francisco, USA-based artist who has just hit my radar thanks to her debut single. A challenge to the conventional wisdom that “time heals all wounds”, it’s called Ectothermic.

“Ectothermic” is a word you don’t hear everyday, and certainly not in the context of lost love. The word, meaning “cold-blooded”, comes from Julip’s background in STEM. Through her song, Julip uniquely subverts a lot of things with her wit, creating a gripping, emotional story that unfolds against a backdrop of melancholic pop rock.

Julip takes her cues from 90s rock artists like Mazzy Star, The Smashing Pumpkins, Slowdive, and Alanis Morisette. If you’re a fan of any of those acts, or contemporaries like Alvvays, Phoebe Bridgers, and Clairo, then you need to give Ectothermic a go. You can check it out below.
