Julia Losfelt | One Against a Million

After I first listened to Julia Losfelt’s song “Away” last year, and the rest of her “Quiet Storm EP” (2013), it felt like she’d named her record appropriately. She’s the queen of creating low-key moody pieces sprinkled with soft microbeats, really unique musical transitions and vocal layering. It’s music that’s light but filled to the brim. In a way, her musical architecture is built on controlling volume, ebbs and flows. With exquisite control she makes mountains of hushed moments. But she also finds a way to sound organic, shaping fresh sounds by grace and instinct. (Listen to “Away” and you’ll hear exactly what I mean. It’s just as creative as artists like BANKS, Farao and FKA Twigs.) Now Losfelt posted a new single called “One Against A Million”, that finds her playing with a club beat, upping the ante by mixing piano, a touch of soul, spacey instrumentation, all inside a song with a faster tempo. It’s stunningly good. Once again she’s forged a track with wonderful complexity that comes off as effortless. You can follow her at facebook— David D. Robbins Jr.
