Introducing The Julian Day
The Julian Day began recording immediately after the Winter Solstice of 2010 and posted their first song "Policy" on reverbnation during the first week of January, 2011. With the days growing longer, they felt something in the air. And then came the Arab Spring and The Julian Day were in what Shakespeare once called, "a fine frenzy rolling."
Immersed at a young age in the songs of the great singer/songwriters of the 70s and the experimentation of 80s bands like New Order, U2 and Echo and The Bunnymen, The Julian Day fuses the two to offer a wholly new sound for 2014 that amps it up while stripping it down. With The Julian Day you'll find good songwriting mixed with just enough instrumentation to drive the songs along. Working with the idea that art is best when nothing can be added and nothing can be taken away, The Julian Day seeks to engage the listener head-on. Spare and spartanized, these songs have just the right amount of color and texture while offering brief lessons in the game of life.
"Listening to The Julian Day’s catalog, I discovered that this was not a band that conformed to any traditional playbook. None of their songs are by any means traditional. While their eclecticism may not be everyone, it is part of the charm that makes this band worth listening to. It’s difficult to draw comparisons with any other artist, as The Julian Day has certainly created a sound they can call their own." - Brad Madison, Soundvaults
"Strong distinctive sound and blend of west/east, old/new, melody/poetry ... a real pleasure to listen to. Looking forward to hearing more." - Greg Charles/A Nice Vibe, San Francisco [+]
