Julianna Barwick is a Brooklyn-based musician who has self-released two records. 2007's Sanguine, a collection of loop-based vocal arrangements, was made in her bedroom and completely improvised. 2009's Florine EP adheres to the same loop-based, mostly vocal structure with minimal instrumentation. Pitchfork recently recognized her as a 'Rising' artist and named the track 'Bode' from the Florine EP as 'Best New Music.'
Nepenthe, Julianna Barwick's third full-length, was recorded in Reykjavik, Iceland and recently released on Dead Oceans / Secretly Canadian. So far, the album has garnered a Best New Music from Pitchfork, a glowing live review from the New York Times, NPR's First Listen, features in the Fader and Wall Street Journal, the cover of CMJ, and UK raves from the Guardian, Quietus, Line of Best Fit and Drowned in Sound. Barwick recently completed a month-long tour in the U.S., supporting Sigur Ros.
