Song Of The Day: Juliper Sky “Afterglow”

Juliper Sky has made significant strides in the ten months since its inception, catching the eyes and ears of Spotify’s editorial tastemakers with several highly regarded playlist placements receiving over a quarter of a million streams in the process. Meanwhile, the band have gained national and international radio support from the likes of BBC Introducing, BBC Radio, Radio X, Amazing Radio and KEXP

Working around the worldwide pandemic the band released its sixth single titled Afterglow late last month. Guitarist Liam Grindell commented on how “to be honest this track was vastly different to start with. It was definitely intended to be a slow burner and was a lot less punchy than the beast it has turned into. We never intended for it to be a serious release but was a live jam we always liked to use to break up the live set. It just so happens that when recording drum tracks for a previous release, we had a spare twenty minutes before the end of the session, and obviously, as we are tight northerners Ben slapped down the original incarnation of the track to make the most of the time, and money. When it dawned on us that we were going to struggle in recording any of the new demos over the spring it was a relief to release that we had those drum stems ready and waiting in the wings. So with a lot of chopping, rearranging, and rewriting we end up with the much more streamlined version of the track. This manifestation is definitely more to the point and it has made us see the track in a completely different light”

The newest single is a dreamy bit of Bedroom pop with Jamie Lambert’s ethereal vocals and a mix of soft instruments that drive the song forward. Lambert had this to say about Afterglow:

“lyrically the track explores feelings of being lost and not truly knowing who or what you are supposed to be. You know there is something in there, a fire and a desire to be what you want to be but have not found out how to achieve it. In essence, it is a song of frustration, of not being able to comfortably release what lies inside”

You can usually find me traveling, queuing, or at barricade for a band. I am most likely doing all three things in a day. If I'm not at a concert you can also find me digging through crates for that coveted black disc of vinyl.
