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 song opens with the the sounds that came from the jungle outside of her and collaborator Jack Goodman’s window. A bare guitar line carries the song into a lightly stomping rhythm, with Julietta’s vocals cooly floating above a dark yet tropical instrumental.
“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
