EDITORS’ NOTES

Julianna Barwick's third album embraces synths to striking effect. Comprising field recordings and studio work, the buzz of traffic encircles Will, interwoven with Barwick's haunted choirgirl voice. She sounds submerged on “Nebula,” where striking synths dapple the surface of the water, but comes into focus on “Someway”, her voice chiming like church bells. On closing song “See, Know”, her long coo guides jazz percussion and a strident synth lead, the aggression positioning her music in the thrum of the real world.
