Julius Black’s ‘Mirrors’ made a huge impact for a self-released debut track. It picked up playlist support including Majestic CasualChilled Afternoon and Study Zone as it raced to 100,000 streams in just two months. Further tastemaker media interest soon followed, including DIY who hailed it as, “A stunning debut, keep your eyes peeled for what he conjures up next.”
And what he has conjured up is just as essential. His new track ‘Summer’ is a heart-wrenching second chapter to the story that he commenced with his debut. His existential art pop puts a teenage twist on the reflection of Villagers and the experimental soul of James Blake to create a statement that’s just as powerful. 
While ‘Mirrors’ was a poetic expression of hitting a devastating low, ‘Summer’ tells the story of one of the moments that led to that crisis. In a nostalgic flashback to summer, Julius immediately sets out the narrative of an impending breakup with the opening lyrics, “You will never love me.”  Listen HERE.
“I was moving cities, and we both knew we’d be leaving behind what we had,” says Julius“I wanted to see it through, right ‘til the end, even though it was stupidly uncomfortable knowing that we won’t last. ‘Summer’ is that feeling; a world coming to an end.”
Julius wrote the song and called upon his creative collaborator Struan Finlay for production duties.
