Influenced by the likes of iconic artists like Oasis, The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Tom Petty and Bruce Springsteen, UK-based singer-songwriter Julience brings a strong rock sound to the masses. As a teenager, Julience performed as part of the band Ampiphy before relocating from The Netherlands to the UK, and his love for music came along. While he is still a newbie in the UK rock scene, he has gained critical acclaim for his singles featuring in Less Than 1000 Followers. The latest addition to his repertoire is ‘Love Lies Cold’.
Hot on the heels of his debut single ‘Alcohol’, Julience adopts a classic rock sound in ‘Love Lies Cold’. Far heavier than ‘Alcohol’, ‘Love Lies Cold’ is a powerful guitar-driven song with a lot of attitude. The melodic arrangement of pounding drums, dynamic guitars and Julience’s gruff vocals tips you into a whirlpool of sound. Playing all the instruments himself, Julience not only demonstrates his musicality in the track but also his innovation as an artist.
As I said, Julience immediately tips you into a whirlpool of sound with his sophomore single. A blinding swirl of kaleidoscopic instrumentation rushes before your eyes while he grips your heart with the intoxicating music. While I truly love his melody, it is the way this rock sound represents the poignant theme that excites me. Julience explains that ‘Love Lies Cold’ touches on “…being between a rock and a hard place, a place between passion and hate. A relationship too hot to handle.”
This is my introduction to Julience, and I am thrilled with the find. Sincere, sentimental and soothing in its own gritty way, ‘Love Lies Cold’ will definitely be on repeat for several weeks. If the lad is this talented in the studio, I cannot wait to see what he is like live. I have a feeling it’ll be outstanding.
