Bio

Intimate summer nights by the side of a portable 4 track. Cheap guitars, casios, reverb soak, samples.
Aesthetic which blends the once disparate fields of sampling and ambience with the rock and pop world, weaving bizarre instrumental textures through traditional forms.

...

'She looks like Tune-Yards and sings like Melody Echo Chamber or Twin Sister, and sounds just as tantalising as all three of those artists. Remember the name Julia R. Anderson.' - Marcus Rimondini, The RIPE

'Anderson has a real knack for balancing hooks and an impeccable ear for composition'
- Grace Pashley, 4ZZZ

'Everything I have seen and heard her do has been exciting. Bloody unreal (and set to take off huge)’
– Brendan Telford, Sonic Masala

'Unassuming swirling psych sound...her ability to move from across the psych spectrum from folk to garage is proof the constant development is paying dividends'
- Grace Pashley, Whothehell.net

‘Julia Anderson of Bundaberg molds low-fi shadows of the Velvet Underground into a contemporary teenage role’ - Brad Marsellos, ABC.

I'm really tuned in to what Julia's doing. A clever song with nice freckles of personality.
