Amsterdams very own, alt R&B artist Juliet July debuts her highly anticipated and introspectively gorgeous EP ‘Palm trees in the mist’. The 6-track project includes previously released treasures such as ‘Sunday Afternoon’, ‘Easy’ and ‘Blue Paradise’. To add to the already delectable mix she includes the single track ‘Gone’ which is a true testament to Juliets velvet vocals, the sensual slow jam ‘One Way Street’, and the transitional track ‘Intentional’.
Juliet’s has an incredibly innate ability to create such an exquisite fusion of contemporary R&B, soul and jazz and it’s showcased beautifully within each and every element of the EP.
Juliet discusses below what the EP means to her, “Palm trees represent happiness, joy, warmth, The Mist represents more heavy, sad and dark emotions. ‘Palm trees in the mist’ combined, creates a symbolism for me to keep seeing the ‘Silver Livings’ in whatever situation life throws at us.” – Juliet July.
She also includes a spoken word piece which perfectly encapsulates the concept.
‘Palm trees in the mist’
“Layered moments of mixed emotions.
Multicolored to grey.
Doors open while locking others.
Finding love while losing it.
It has always fascinated me
Just as, the possibility, to choose,
How to make sense of it, this time.
I’d like to say; I kiss the silver linings
Feel the sunshine in the rainbow
And see, the palmtrees in the mist..”
