Julia Anrather's voice has a way of bringing you to your knees with her melodic mix of soul and folk. When we first heard Quiet Day, we were put into a lyrical trance, craving solitude with someone you long for. Julia's first single is the ultimate reflective music for those days when you're sitting at home, drenched in sunlight and dreams. We had a chance to chat with this Brooklyn based artist to hear her inspiration behind the song.

Julia on "Quiet Day"

For a while I thought that being in love had to mess you up or it wasn't working, and I wrote a lot of songs about that kind of love. "Quiet Day" is one of them, and it's about what you figure out when you have a minute to think. Or maybe not what you figure out but what you work through — missing the person, realizing maybe they're right, but also fuck them, but you still miss them, etc. When you've made yourself crazy busy so you can run from your thoughts but then a moment of stillness sneaks up on you and suddenly you have to think it all through and own up to what's really going on.
