Julia Holter Shares New Song “Sun Girl”
Singer/songwriter and composer Julia Holter releases her new single “Sun Girl” today on Domino. Fragments of flute, field recordings, Yamaha CS-60, bagpipes, mellotron, drums, and fretless bass are interwoven to delirious and balmy effect, infusing the ludic drum programing and production style of Holter’s earliest recordings with a fresh vibrancy. The song’s lyrics – “Place me, drag me, move me, Sun Girl”—evoke the spirit of a childlike game, but also, says Holter, “being brought out of my comfort zone—into the unknown, playfulness and chaos.” The track is available today via Domino Records and your favourite streaming services.
“Sun Girl” follows Holter’s 2018 album Aviary. In 2020 she composed the score for Eliza Hittman’s award-winning film Never Rarely Sometimes Always, and in the past year she wrote and performed a new live soundtrack to the 1928 silent film The Passion of Joan of Arc with England’s Chorus of Opera North; appeared on the UK producer Call Super’s full-length Eulo Cramps; and created remixes for Beverly Glenn-Copeland’s Keyboard Fantasies Reimagined and British hyperpop pioneer Max Tundra’s Remixtape.
