Melbourne songstress Julia Lostrom drops dreamy visuals to accompany the anticipated release of her charming new track ‘Walls’, a song about the challenge of feeling an instant connection with someone you’ve met, but struggling to go any deeper as they won’t let their barriers down.
Directed by New Wave Infinity’s Rachel Vowels and shot by Nick Rae and Anthony Lostrom, the music video effortlessly captures the polarity between the meaning of ‘Walls’ and the lack thereof featured throughout the incredibly picturesque set at Lake Tyrrell, a magical landscape in regional Victoria.
On the visuals Julia says, “I wanted to evoke a sense of freedom with the visuals while still maintaining a scene of romance. When I saw an image of Lake Tyrrell I knew it would be a perfect location.”
While the video serves as the perfect visualisation of what ‘Walls’ embodies, the purpose behind its creation is twofold. Always inspired by the creative community in Melbourne, Julia wanted to work alongside the various versatile talents of her city to showcase the beautiful regional landscapes this country has to offer. This includes the collection of dresses worn by Julia and designed by Melbourne’s Marda Label, which elegantly complement the softs hues and textures of the scenery.
“When the time is right, I hope this video will inspire people to go out and explore further regions of Victoria to help elevate their communities, especially after the devastating fires that have just passed.”
Produced by Duan, Rob Amaruso, and Simba Andrews, and co-written by Bailey Sampson, ‘Walls’ is a true collaborative masterpiece that combines ambient sonics with tantalizing pop-beats that transition into a biblical cadence gracefully laced with Julia’s gentle vocals.
Julia Lostrom is a Melbourne-based, Zambian-raised and Greek-born singer-songwriter who harnesses her diverse cultural upbringing to inspire her breathy material which flutters between LoFi pop-electronic melodies and slightly left-of-centre R&B.
Expect a lot more to come from Julia Lostrom, who is currently embracing her love for collaboration while working on her upcoming EP and various other creative projects slated for release throughout the year.
