Hybrid-pop songstress, julianne, is moving on with her latest single “path i choose”. At once introspective and bursting at the seams, it’s the kind of track that rises from the ashes with the resilient mindset of a phoenix.
The song balances its more electronic foundations with the electric sheen of guitar octaves that linger in the background of the chorus. But it is julianne’s soft, yet urgent vocals that take centerstage with fanciful pop hooks and bouts of percussive rhythms that pull her between being a pop goddess and a thoughtful emcee.
“[it] marks a dynamic shift in my life. deciding to go right or left…or turn around” she writes about the song’s inspiration. “I was stuck in my habitual ways, unable to move forward until something changed. Writing this song helped me make the decision to move on, to leave and grow, instead of stay and continue to be unhappy. ‘path I choose’ resembles a fight back for freedom, a stance on admitting where you are wrong and doing what it takes to make your life what you want it to be.”
“path i choose” is available now on major streaming platforms like Spotify and Apple Music. The official lyric video will also be released on Friday, January 27 on YouTube. Find “path i choose” on the Alchemical Records Multigenre Mixture playlist on Spotify.
