Julien Chang releases new single Memory Loss

Julien Chang has released a new single, Memory Loss - you can listen to the track here.

The 19-year-old multi-instrumentalist, producer, and songwriter says of the track, "A worsening memory is something I've always been worried about. The song was made with a kind of structural rigidity in mind, and about memory’s natural lack of it when having trouble putting faces to names, for example. It’s easy to be frustrated by that feeling, but being left with a sudden emotional reaction sparked by some stimulus for an unclear reason can be as lovely as it is disorienting."

Entirely self-recorded and self-produced, Julien's debut album Jules showcases his remarkable vision and breathtaking instrumental chops. The arrangements twist and turn, toying with expectations and revelling in the freedom and discovery of youth. At the same time, Chang’s subtle, restrained vocal delivery suggests a deep thoughtfulness, one that belies his youth as he grapples with love and friendship, growth and change, memory and regret. The result is an album that boldly defies categorization, a trippy sonic collage that dares you to keep up as it tips its cap to everything from Stevie Wonder and The Beatles to Tame Impala and Robert Glasper. Jules is out on October 11th 2019 - you can preorder the outstanding record here.

Julien and his five-piece live band full of friends from school will embark on his first ever tour later this year with dates that include two London headline shows at Bermondsey Social Club on 28th October and Servant Jazz Quarters on 29th October 2019, as well as a headline show at Brooklyn’s Baby’s All Right on October 15th.
