Following the release of her recent singles No Feeling and Do This To Me, Manchester-via-Italy singer, songwriter and guitarist Julia Bardo has shared new single Impossible, taken from her eagerly awaited debut album Bauhaus, L’Appartamento released this Friday on 10th September via Wichita Recordings.
Impossible is a passionate and heartfelt track, which is Julia’s unique twist on a love song as an ode to herself. It showcases her fragile yet powerful voice, accompanied by perfect moments of her murmuring Italian within the song, making it a seamless introduction to her debut album coming later this week. She says;
“’Impossible’ is about emotional dependency and learning how to live by yourself, with yourself, and become comfortable with being on your own”
The single follows Julia’s recent tracks Do This To Me and the acclaimed No Feeling, with both featuring on her forthcoming debut album released later this week. The album follows the release of two EPs, Phase and The Raw EP, both released last year, which saw her experiment further with her wistful and mysterious sound to become the alternative pop artist she is today. Whilst Bauhaus, L’Appartamento will mark her first full length release and the finale of this part of her musical journey, it is also just the beginning for the authentic and curious talent that is Julia Bardo.
With her candidly open lyrics illustrating her world through journal-like observations and poetic visions, her debut album is an intimate and expressive body of work. Named after the apartment complex she lived in when demoing the album’s recordings, but with an Italian twist, it features four previously released singles including It’s Okay (To Not Be Okay), Do This To Me, No Feeling and new single Impossible and can be pre-ordered here.
“The album is a collection of emotions and feelings; loneliness, solitude, separation, but also unconditional love. Family, emotional dependency, mental health issues, feelings of emptiness and numbness, feelings of not being enough, inability to be in control of my own emotions, self-doubt, self-reflection, past traumas and dealing with them.”
Having performed at UK festivals such as Neighbourhood, Liverpool Sound City and The Great Escape, alongside support dates with Blossoms and playing her own headline shows, Julia Bardo has announced an Autumn headline tour alongside a series of festival appearances, with full dates below, which are on sale now.
