New Release: Yulia - 'Virgin Mary'
Yulia is a Warsaw-born artist, lyricist, poet, writer and journalist, now set to electrify the European alt-pop scene. Her sound aesthetic channels the raw dark ambience of the post-Eastern Bloc music underground supported by fresh and naturalistic vocals. Yulia now arrives with her most personal and political song to date, ‘Virgin Mary’ taken from her debut EP ‘Warsaw Mule’. The edgy and energetic alternative-pop track features fierce synths contrasted with Yulia’s silky-smooth vocals as she tells the story of her identity crisis being a Polish girl living in London.

Her debut EP ‘Warsaw Mule’ is a nostalgic ballad about an identity crisis induced by living in two highly polarised cities – Warsaw and London. Yulia, as a protagonist, is guiding the listener through the stuffiness of Hackney bars, the rawness of Warsaw after parties and the melancholy of painful, hungover flights. ‘Warsaw Mule’ is Yulia’s audio-visual project, which she is creating in collaboration with the most exciting, rising Warsaw creatives. By inviting her friends and friends of friends, who work in various creative fields such as photography, music and film production, fashion and graphic design to help her build a multidimensional concept project based on her songs, she wanted to reflect the authenticity of the storyline, which directly relates to the magnetism of the modern Warsaw bourgeois bohemian community.
