AUDIO: Julius Dolls – “Lavish Outlandish”
Chicago-based alternative pop artist Julius Dolls has his sophomore record out today. He incorporates elements of dream pop, shoegaze, soul, and rock into a delectable blend. There’s themes of self-liberation, freedom, and vacation throughout his songwriting, which terrifically complement the atmospherics. Some songs twinkle while others ripple. Holed up in his Logan Square apartment in quarantine, Dolls’ close friends comprise largely of fellow eccentric and tasteful artists that contributed to his exhibition. It culminates into a grand testament of making something out of nothing with talented people, as well as how beautiful life may be when you keep the right folks in it. We look forward to hopefully getting visuals from Julius Dolls to follow.
