Julia Holter shares re-working of Horns Surrounding Me
1st February 2017
As 2016 drew to a close, Domino launched a new imprint, Documents – an irregular new series of live studio recordings designed to capture the ever-evolving arrangements of our artists and their bands in high fidelity. Taking its inspiration from classic BBC sessions, each Domino Documents release will be recorded in no more than a day or two at a world class studio in London. Or at least that’s the plan.
The first official Documents release is In The Same Room by Julia Holter, although Domino count Villagers’ Where Have You Been All My Life? as the honorary inaugural Document in all but name.
In The Same Room – to be released March 31st 2017 – is named after a song from Holter’s 2012 album Ekstasis, and this new career-spanning collection is the fruit of two days recording by Julia and her tremendous band (Corey Fogel – drums/vocals; Dina Maccabee - viola/vocals and Devin Hoff - stand-up bass) at RAK Studios in the days after their main stage performance at Green Man Festival in Wales.
Having already shared a re-working of ‘So Lillies’ (originally on Tragedy), Holter is pleased to share a new version of Loud City Song track ‘Horns Surrounding Me’.
Comprised of new arrangements of songs from three of her previous studio releases (Tragedy, Loud City Song and 2015's breakthrough Have You In My Wilderness), Holter's Domino Documents is an essential release for anyone who has witnessed her brilliant, beguiling band on tour around the world in the last five years as well as the perfect introduction to a truly important and innovative young artist.
In the 16 months since Have You In My Wilderness, Julia has gone from strength to strength, including playing the biggest headline show of her career in the UK last month – at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire – and scoring the soundtrack for the new Miles Teller film Bleed For This.
In The Same Room is available to pre-order now on limited edition deluxe coloured vinyl with exclusive Polaroid photographs from the RAK session, standard vinyl, CD and digital download.
