Juliet July is a Dutch singer songwriter.
Today, she releases her debut EP Palm trees in the mist.
The mini-album takes listeners on a reflective journey through a multitude of emotive layers, leading from love, longing and lust onwards to heartbreak and anger, finally resolving in an air of positivity and gratitude in which the saying Silver Linings remains the overarching, prominent and ever-present theme.
”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.” – Juliet.
The EP includes the singles Sunday Afternoon, Blue Paradise and Easy.
The remaining 2 unreleased tracks are the sensual, slow jam One Way Street and acts as an interlude to the single Gone. Summarising the EP, Juliet provides a poetic, spoken word verse which perfectly encapsulates the concept.
“Layered moments of mixed emotions.
Multicolored to grey.
Doors open while locking others.
Finding love while losing it.
It has always fascinated me
Just as, the possibility, to choose,
How to make sense of it, this time.
I’d like to say; I kiss the silver linings
Feel the sunshine in the rainbow
And see, the palmtrees in the mist..”
Gone is accompanied by a visual, shot by Sethi. It looks artistic and creative. Watch it here.
Juliet’s talent has no end. She continues to deliver good music. Her innate ability to create such an exquisite fusion of contemporary R&B, soul and jazz is showcased beautifully within each and every element of the 6- track project.
The whole EP is a masterpiece. Every song tells a story.
