Júlia (ES)

Space observation

Is Valencia the Spanish equivalent of Baltimore? We don’t know if the capital of Turia would be right for a series like The Wire, but if Baltimore has Beach House, then Valencia can have Júlia. Why not? Before you ask, Júlia is not a solo artist, nor has the duo formed by Estela Tormo and Lídia Vila just landed in our world. They debuted in 2012, in 2017 they released their album of expansive oneiric pop Pròxima B and they sing in Valencian quoting references that include Austra, Maga and Tulsa: essential cardinal points to pinpoint the sound constellation of a galaxy that only needs you to set your eyes (and ears) on it.
