theUtmost Been eagerly awaiting the full album release ever since Julia has been teasing me with the singles...
As per prior releases, I love, love LOVE Julia's signature "ease of transition" between modal & falsetto register.
She makes it seem so effortless and smooth. She may be a short chook, but is gifted with a voice that is simultaneously powerful and fragile - it has the ability to reach into your soul and stir things up.
Top stuff.
Oh and the instrumentation is very well done indeed as well :)

souvenir 04:22
i look you straight in the eye and tell you what i have feared the secret that i've held dear for half my life you meet the barrage with grace the valour to stand your ground without feeling honour bound to make things right and as the veil falls it moves, it breaks like silver worn for a life, a souvenir when we wake up a clear reminder we made it out we broke our armour in faith back when i was so young a bright overloaded gun i worked it out i let the veil fall it moves, it breaks like silver worn for a life, a souvenir when we wake up a clear reminder we made it out

pick up 05:34
i cut you open i had to begin to understand your form and function the colour that shifts beneath my hand when you sing to me of a family i put my heart on the line you are a muse to me all my judgement has come to harm with no advisory you simply silenced the alarm you played my heart like the government you overfurnished the lie now pick up a lonely heart the sweet discovery how i surrendered to your hand all lies and subterfuge yet i still stand and if you'll sing to me now of a family i'll take my heart across the line now pick up a lonely heart and look how it beats for two now pick up a lonely heart and look how it beats for you

when i fell in love you and i, we were strangers and all of thee above turned their heads and didn't see the danger now you just go on casually avoiding the question did i do something wrong? how are you accountable to no-one why? why should i stay and never learn to keep my head above water? stars will not align planets will not light the way before you you say the angels lie but angels never walked a mile beside you now all of thee above never had a handle on the problem it's hard to be of consequence when you're an imaginary notion now, come take my hand and we'll both learn to keep our heads above water

we light fire to not forget we fall too easy, afraid of our last regret send the light out into the dark to cast the shadows away from a wounded heart we light fire for the tears in our eyes we light fire waiting for the sunrise we don't know that it's always gonna be this way but we're here today we light fire in communion another year in a circle around the sun all alone we escape somehow a subtle movement, the distance from here 'til now we light fire for the tears in our eyes we light fire waiting for the sunrise we don't know that it's always gonna feel this way but we're here today with our hearts aflame all i want in this life is a light to relieve me from the cold and the dark 'til the dawn you cool my head in the heat of the day and you lead me through the night and the calm and the storm we light fire we light fire we light fire we light fire we light fire for the tears in our eyes we light fire waiting for the sunrise we don't know that we're always gonna feel this way but we're here today with our hearts aflame

burning cars 04:19
there's nothing to it we'll sail through it we'll lock arms we'll burn cars if it comes to it we'll drive onwards we'll not cower it's in our grasp stand steadfast and we draw power and we're here tonight standing in the rain if you'll hold your fire long enough to hear we'll be one again and we'll heal tonight over your shoulder we crept close no more jokes no blind hoax we've grown older and we see light and we heal and we heal tonight as we're standing in the rain if you hold your fire long enough to hear we'll be one again and we'll heal tonight holding vigil in the rain if you'll hold your fire hold your tongue hold your tithe stop your emissary line sending words that we can't use any more hollow prose won't disguise shifting enemy lines accountability is gold and we heal tonight as we're standing in the rain if you hold your fire long enough to hear we'll be one again and we'll heal tonight holding vigil in the rain if you'll hold your fire go on hold your fire we can heal

centre 02:48
centre of the sun – no light, no light quicker than the stars shine out, burn through i breathe out with you this life we lead straight through middle of the day – we learn, we try hollow of the moon – i burn like you forever never lies before us and i breathe out with you this life we lead straight through quicker than the stars shine out, it’s through centre of the sun, hollow of the moon quicker than the stars quicker than the stars shine out, burn through

chelsea 03:48
chelsea, it's just a lonely night in only four hours we'll see dawn the day will come, there may be heavy clouds but above the haze there's still sun in a wide open sky there's a slow turning moon shifting the tides shaping our lives from your small golden hand runs a line through this land connecting our hearts from ending to start listen, my love, the rain falling out in the yard will marry the sound of the softest drum in a wide open sky there's a slow turning moon shifting the tides shaping our lives from your small shaking hand runs a line that cuts straight through this land from your heart to mine and backward through time we all play our part from ending to start chelsea, it's just the loneliest night in four little hours we'll see dawn
