video premiere: Julia Lucille – Darkening
We were lucky enough to see Austin’s Julia Lucille perform songs from her stunning new LP recently in her hometown, in an intimate, packed-out room inside at the Mohawk. Her powerfully understated and emotionally moving performance only reinforced for us that Chthonic, a collection of smoldering, vulnerable dream-folk reveries, is one of the most beautiful and haunting records you’re going to hear all year. Today, Julia shares a lovely, quintessentially Central Texas video for “Darkening“, directed by Jordan Moser, that captures the record’s intoxicating dreamy/dark vibe perfectly. Chthonic is out April 7th on Keeled Scales. Check the video below, and catch Julia Lucille live at SXSW next week, or at her album release show in Austin next month.
