Mistletone proudly presents the return of the incomparable, alchemical, JULIANNA BARWICK. Once memorably described by Diplo as the sound of "Care Bears making love", Julianna Barwick’s cleansing frequencies have also been praised by Pitchfork as "among the best and most artful ambient music being made today". Her live shows take listeners to a psychedelic other-world, creating an epic auditory landscape of huge majesty.

Since her third full-length album, Will, came out in May on Dead Oceans Records, Brooklyn experimental artist Julianna Barwick has toured with Sigur Rós, sung with children’s choirs around the world, recorded and performed with the Flaming Lips, recorded Bach’s “Adagio from Concerto In D Minor” on Sony Masterworks, played piano and sang with Yoko Ono and brewed a wasabi beer, Rosabi, with Dogfish Head. Julianna Barwick’s diverse past has also included collaborative albums with Ikue Mori and Helado Negro, a remix commission from Radiohead and her song “Vow” remixed by Diplo. Upcoming Barwick projects include a film score and a music box.

Julianna’s latest, revelatory album Will was a surprising left turn. Ominous and compelling, Will is a departure from 2013's Alex Somers-produced Nepenthe. If that last record conjured images of gentle, thick fog rolling over desolate mountains, then the self-produced Will is a late afternoon thunderstorm, a cathartic collision of sharp and soft textures that sounds looming and restorative all at once.

"Downright medicinal, altering the listener’s surroundings in ways that make them uncomfortable, yet still wondrously inviting” - NPR

"Her ethereal multi-tracked harmonies have the devotional quality of gospel choirs, and the oddball allure of Bjork or Yoko Ono” - NEW YORK TIMES

“So beautiful it might indeed reach the ear of heaven” – SYDNEY MORNING HERALD (4.5 stars)
