Known as the singer/guitarist in Chastity Belt, Julia Shapiro has now shared ‘Natural’, a taster track from her debut solo album.
As befits a track from an album due to be released in June, ‘Natural’ is pastoral and dreamy, reminiscent of sunny summer days spent running across fields. The guitars are pleasantly jangly, the vocals drawled.
Like so many modern day artists, Shapiro has emerged from a period of ill health and introspection to reflect on self awareness and self improvement. Recording an album of homespun songs, self produced, where she plays almost all of the instruments herself has been a part of this. ‘Natural’ is the opening track on the forthcoming album and, judging from this summery slice of indie, listeners are in for a treat.
Perfect Version, the debut solo album from Julia Shapiro, is due to be released on 14th June via Hardly Art.
