Along with the deluge of new producers in recent years has come an appreciation and affinity for the multi-talented musician, a studio Swiss Army knife capable of delivering a greater sense of depth to the music. Dutch-born, Sydney-based artist, Julien Mier, answers that call, as the Utrecht School of the Arts graduate employs his talents in singing, songwriting, production, and multiple instruments in his intelligent, texture-rich musical offerings. Following recent releases on Canadian collective, King Deluxe, as well as Ryan Hemsworth’s Secret Songs, Julien Mier has connected with NEST for his new single, “Sunwalker”, out today.
“Sunwalker” boasts fluid textures and bubbly melodies for a pop-leaning production with one foot firmly planted in cerebral, indie dance. Julien’s relaxed vocals are warm and inviting, and his propensities for bright chords and playful guitar add to the record’s particularly cheerful demeanor. “Sunwalker” is a perfect track to transition from summer to fall, a singalong-ready single you’ll find yourself humming later this afternoon.
