Julia Clara is an artist from the Åland Islands, producing a vein of stirring, dark pop with creative structures and tones. “Young & Ungrateful” is evident of this creativity and exploration. Pit-pattering percussion and delicate vocals form the initial feel, with the added percussion and vibrant synth pad at 01:13 showing initial sounds of expansion. By the track’s conclusion, the build-up of melodic and rhythmic components make “Young & Ungrateful” a very enjoyable listen. The track follows previous success from the aritst, whose debut single “Still Dancing” led to a South American tour, in addition to performances in Berlin, Madrid, Stockholm, Åland, and Brighton.
“Young & Ungrateful” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of July 2019’ Spotify playlist.
