Though Julietta was born and raised in New York, she has found her sound in Central America. The artist spent her winter in the dense jungles of Nicaragua at Maderas Village Studios recording her single “Beach Break,” which  has caught the attention of music blogs across the globe and led to features as an upcoming artist to watch in NME Magazine and on Triple J Radio. Her elegant vocals and atmospheric melodies contrast dramatically with her chaotic and bustling home of New York City. Her music utilizes universal themes of love  and loss to blend her unabashed relentlessness with her modern sensibility.

Julietta went to Central America because she “needed some time to write, read, create, get lost with monkeys, and get beat up surfing,” she told Interview magazine in the feature accompanying the single’s premiere. The magazine continued:

Before heading south she had spent time in Los Angeles, in search of collaborators, and met Jack Goodman, with whom she “instantly bonded.” Goodman played Julietta music he produced that she could write to, and their matching of ‘musical souls’ led her to make a sudden offer. “Three hours after I met the guy, I told him: ‘Listen, I know this is going to sound crazy, but bear with me. … Come with me [to Nicaragua], let’s finish creating these tracks, and get lost together,’ she says. “He looked at me as if I had six heads.” But Goodman went. The next time they met was at a beach bar on Playa San Juan del Sur… “It comes from an honest place,” says Julietta of the song. “It’s a direct translation of the emotions Jack and I had while we were at Maderas. The sounds in the opening of the song are the sounds that came from the jungle outside our windows.”

“One of the best pop songs I’ve heard in a while. The only critique I have is that it’s too short. Julietta’s voice has that “I’m too cool for you” attitude, similar to Lana Del Rey or Alexandra Savoir, but she has something they don’t have: upbeat danceability.” -Baeble Music
