‘Body’ follows a debut LP from Julia’s other band Phantastic Ferniture - who we featured in our recent round-up of the buzziest new Aussie bands, FYI - and comes ahead of a series of sold-out intimate UK shows.
“The song speaks for itself I think,” she says, “but I’d say it’s just a very long and exaggerated sigh - born from feelings of powerlessness when it comes to the impossible task of representing yourself the way you think is right; personally and professionally. When you feel like everything is for the taking no matter what you do.”
The track comes complete with a new video, directed by longtime collaborator Nick Mckk, as she explains: “Nick and I drove out to the Hay Plain which is one of my favourite parts of Australia. We spent about 14 hours in the car, jumping out when something looked beautiful. Whenever I listened to this song I knew the clip had to be a driving one, destination unknown.”
