Julia-Sophie “numb”


‘forgive too slow’ is the debut solo album from acclaimed Anglo-French avant-garde electronic artist Julia-Sophie.

The weird and winding journey to this debut has included experiences as an international major label artist with Little Fish (“I didn’t care enough about being famous to survive all the sh*t that was being thrown at me.”), recording film scores as a member of Candy Says, motherhood, and much more.

The album is about relationships and what happens when we “forgive too slow” and can’t break out of patterns from the past. The songs narrate her story of self-destruction (“numb”), love (“falling”), and loss (“telephone”). By the end, embers are still burning and there is no telling if Julia-Sophie has found peace, but we do get a sense that she has gotten closer to the core of her being and is finally living authentically.

‘forgive too slow’ will be released on July 26th via Brooklyn’s Ba Da Bing Records. The album’s lead single, “numb,” is out now and will be followed by “telephone” (Tuesday, June 25th), and “wishful thinking” (Monday, July 22nd).

‘forgive too slow’ Artist Quote:

“My journey with music has been weird and long. I think people assumed that the music I made was exactly what I intended to make, when it’s always just been me trying to figure it out. Being a solo artist has allowed me to really find myself and show who I am in all my messy states.” – Julia-Sophie

Previously she was signed to Universal Motown/Island as a founder of Little Fish who toured the US with acts like Blondie, Courtney Love, and Juliette Lewis. She has also earned millions of streams as a member of Candy Says for songs featured in the films ‘Close’ (Netflix) and ‘Burn Burn Burn.’ Her solo work sees her exploring a darker and more experimental Electronic Pop sound which she combines with hauntingly vulnerable lyrics which are informed by past breakdowns, relationships, motherhood, grief and self-discovery. The album features vocals from Noah Yorke.
