Julia Lostrom Shares New Single ‘Walk Away’

Melbourne-based, Zambian-raised and Greek-born singer-songwriter Julia Lostrom has just shared her brand new single Walk Away, a soul-baring record about the realisation that things need to change, even though you feel afraid and hesitant towards it. 
Produced by long-time collaborator Max Glyde, Walk Away finds the talented artist beautifully showcasing her gorgeous vocals and storytelling abilities over a warm alt-r&b production. This song is about the uncertainty of where Julia’s life was going at the time, drawing attention to the numbness and frustration that comes with being stuck in an unfulfilling routine. 
Speaking about the song, Julia said,
Last year really shook things up for me. It gave me the courage to look within and helped me realise the changes I needed to make, so this song represents that realisation but also the fear of change. Change can be scary, it’s uncomfortable but it’s so necessary and I’m so glad I finally worked up the courage to make the changes I needed to, and this song really initiated it all for me.
I am particularly fond of Julia's hypnotic and layered breathy vocals which glide effortlessly over a captivating blend of alt-r&b and electronica elements that create an overall warm soundscape perfect for those relaxing days home alone or even some sensual bedroom sessions. Check it out below!



On how the song came together, Julia said,
It started with Max sending me a beat late one night and from the second I heard it I was obsessed. I wrote the entire melody that night and let it sit for weeks. I couldn’t bring myself to write the song for a while. I knew what I wanted to write about but didn’t want to deal with the emotions that were going to come up with it. I then had a session with my friend Blush’ko to work on some new music we’d been writing together and showed him the gibberish melody I’d recorded over Max’s beat. We ended up writing the whole song together in his studio that day. He has no idea how much I needed that session, but this song wouldn’t be what it is without those two.
