julie announces my anti-aircraft friend will drop on September 13th via Atlantic Records. The Los Angeles band have also shared the single “clairbourne practice,” which arrives with a visualizer directed by Lizzie Klien and julie.

Speaking about “clairbourne practice,” julie shares, “It’s two voices conflicting and crashing with each other, unable to understand each other. The way the vocals are layered on top of each other in this song is maybe the most androgynous on the album. But it’s two people saying the same thing and still not hearing each other. We definitely wanted the loud and quiet parts to be polar opposites. Sweet, then destructive, and coming back and repeating the cycle.”

julie will be playing shows across North America this summer. This July, julie will be supporting Faye Webster for a string of shows, ahead of a larger this August supporting Alex G. julie is also set to perform headline shows with support from hello mary and Dutch Interior and Hello Mary on select dates while on the West Coast with Alex G.

The band arrived on the scene in 2020 with their single “flutter.” The band’s true beginning goes back to the late 2010s when vocalist and guitarist Keyan Pourzand and drummer Dillon Lee were joined by vocalist and bassist Alex Brady. The trio played shows with local acts around Orange County in high school before relocating to Los Angeles in 2019 for design school, where they began writing the songs that would make up their impending debut album my anti-aircraft friend. In 2021, julie released their EP pushing daisies, which includes the tracks “skipping tiles” and “april’s-bloom” and proceeded their 2022 double single “pg.4 picture of three hedges” / “through your window.”
