Julie's haircut feature in 'Italians Do It Better' piece by Backseat Mafia
Active since the late nineties, from Emilia, Julie’s Haircut are an institution in their own right. They are devoted to spacey, hypnotic sounds and they are masters of their art. The band’s music has evolved in time, through a series of albums and EPs, from the garage-rock soulful energy of their debut towards more experimental grounds, focusing on improv and sound research, without losing touch with the groove and melody that characterized their music since day one. I discovered them in 2017 with the release of Invocation and Ritual Dance of my Demon Twin which was released on Rocket Recordings, as was their latest album In The Silence Electric. I was quickly hooked on their mesmeric layers of sound and delved deep in the back catalogue, which is quite an undertaking and is testament to their prolific productivity. Live they are quite something, not least because there is so many members and in small, underground venues this presents a challenge that they are able to rise too. The world needs bands like Julie’s Haircut who seem to always provide a welcome breath of fresh air with whatever they produce.
