Dutch singer-songwriter Juliet July is bringing something refreshing to the somewhat overpopulated alt-R&B scene. With elements of soul, jazz and even funk infused into her sound, each song on her debut debut ‘Palm Trees in the Mist’ reveals more of its complexities with each listen. July’s velvety vocals are at the forefront of the record, combined with dreamy and dramatic productions that keep listeners craving more.
Describing the release, Juliet July says: “‘Palm Trees’ represent happiness, joy, warmth. ‘The Mist’ represents more heavy, sad and dark emotions. ‘Palm trees in The Mist combined, creates a symbolism for me to keep seeing the ‘Silver Livings’ in whatever situation life throws at us.”
This project isn’t just six tracks worth of stylish and soulful R&B; it’s a full-bodied experience, accompanied by a visual for ‘Gone’ featuring hazy summer aesthetics. There are also gold-glazed music videos for tracks ‘Easy’ and ‘Sunday Afternoon’, both shot in South Africa and praised by the likes of Earmilk and Colors. With emotive lyrics and polished productions, ‘Palm Trees in the Mist’ acts as an ethereal journey into the visionary mind of this child musical actress, international model and now R&B prodigy.
