Julia Gaeta Airs New Single/Video "Hangin on a Dream"

Paris-based American dark pop/shoegaze/alternative musician Julia Gaeta has aired her new single “Hangin on a Dream“, alongside a video.

The track features on her upcoming debut EP ‘Blur Divine‘, due to be released on July 2 via à La Carte Records. Pre-order it here.

With this new EP, Julia invites listeners into a nocturnal world of introspective yet danceable ‘unlove’ songs. Blending lush dark pop with industrial textures and sultry grit, Blur Divine explores the warped perception, fragmented reality and obsession that comes with love gone awry – but drapes these more sinister themes in an ethereal, fragile veil.

Growing up listening to metal, grunge, post-punk and goth music, Gaeta inevitably carries with her the influences of bands such as Alice in Chains, Depeche Mode and Killing Joke. But she also draws from her deep love of ‘90s and early ‘00s pop and hip hop – plus the era of big production they helped usher in. Blur Divine feels like an enigmatic melding of these influences, with some early 4AD vibes added for good measure.
