Born and raised in Dubai to Mexican expats, Julian Lamadrid releases “Die Young” today along with the self-directed music video. Watch the video HERE. “Die Young” is a stylistic homage to ‘80s synth-pop songs that formed Julian’s early musical taste.
“Every aspect of ‘Die Young’ grows and gradually drifts into insanity,” says Julian. “My demented auto-tuned vocals steer into anger and chaos as I lose control. The intensity of the music climbs until finally we are presented with the true meaning, ‘I know you wanna burn, burn, burn, like a fabulous yellow Roman candle, I know you want to live fast and die young, but just hold on tight for one more night, cause I need you baby.’
“Die Young” along with previously released tracks “Mess”and “Neon”will be featured on Julian’s debut album, Mala Noche set to be released later this year. Julian composed, wrote and produced the record in its entirety, as well as directed all of the accompanying visuals. Julian has announced upcoming shows on September 11th at Mercury Lounge in New York, as well as on September 19th at The Echo in Los Angeles.
