Loud City Song has a new album - Horns Surrounding Me - out now

Ahead of her upcoming month-long European tour, Julia Holter has today shared the new video for Loud City Song highlight “Horns Surrounding Me”. Directed by Montreal-based Angus Borsos and based on a concept by Ramona Gonzalez, AKA Nite Jewel, the video follows previous interpretations of the much-celebrated album’s songs by visual artists Rick Bahto (“World”), Yelena Zhelezov (“In The Green Wild”), and Eugene Kotlayrenko. (“This Is A True Heart”).


Watch the video, which Borsos has described as a “soft Disney nightmare” HERE.

Praise for Loud City Song:


Loud City Song is breezy, contemporarily resonant, and flutteringly alive . . . and the one most likely to turn skeptics to believers.” PITCHFORK [BEST NEW MUSIC]


“The whole of Loud City Song, is as assured, and it cements Holter as one of the most accomplished — and challenging — young musicians working in the city.” LOS ANGELES TIMES
