Composer and vocalist Julianna Barwick is known for the hypnotising and tranquil songs she creates with her voice being the main instrument backed by a minimal instrumental. Using looping she creates enormous choir-like experimental soundscapes.
Barwick’s revelatory third full-length “Will” is a surprising left turn for the Brooklyn experimental artist. Conceived and self-produced over the past year in a variety of locations, the ominous, compelling Will is a departure from het previous album “Nepethe”. If that last record conjured images of gentle, thick fog rolling over desolate mountains, then the self-produced “Will” is a late afternoon thunderstorm, a cathartic collision of sharp and soft textures that sounds looming and restorative all at once.
