After the success of her self-released debut track Mirrors, Julius Black has returned with new song Summer.
Summer marks the second chapter of the story he commenced with his debut.
The 19-year old singer-songwriter has long been fascinated with music spanning hip-hop, gospel and punk, evolving these into a sound influences also by Frank Ocean, The 1975 and The Beach Boys.
While Mirrors was a poetic expression of hitting a devastating low, Summer tells the story of one of the moments that led to that crisis. Reflecting nostalgically on the summer, he immediately puts the narrative in context. “You will never love me” he sings.
Speaking about the track, Julius Black explains, “I was moving cities, and we both knew we’d be leaving behind what we had. I wanted to see it through, right ‘til the end, even though it was stupidly uncomfortable knowing that we won’t last. ‘Summer’ is that feeling; a world coming to an end.”
After writing Summer, Julis called on creative collaborator Struan Finlay to produce.
The track will feature on his debut EP which is due for release in 2021.
