JuliaWhy? make melodic, femme-driven rock music with a punk undercurrent. In October the Sydney-based trio released the first single off their sophomore album – Candy.
Recorded and mixed by their very own drummer Peter Beringer, at his Audile Design studio in Marrickville, and produced by the band themselves, Candy is their first offering since welcoming a new guitarist, Caleb Jacobs (Plum).
Already a favourite in their live set, Candy is a punchy lament to the slow decay of addiction and the first single since the band’s acclaimed debut record, Wheel (2015) which saw them tour extensively through Australia and Canada.
Wheel garnered huge praise both here and abroad with the album reaching #13 on the U.S. College Radio Charts and receiving strong support from FBi, 2ser, 4ZZZ and triple j to name a few.
“Hazy, grungy echo-laden melodic girl-driven shoegaze with a punk rock edge that keeps the treble set properly is the order of the day and Julia Why? have nailed the brief.” – LouderSoft (USA)
“Scratchy, frenetic, gritty and catchy as hell.” – Dom Alessio, TRIPLE J
“JuliaWhy? is the axe slinging femme fatale that we were all in dire need of.” – Cameron Menegoni, 2SER radio
“What it comes down to is infectious and fantastic songs. They’re short knockouts that scrape away bullshit, and replace it with the kind of delirious, fuzzy pop that put Karen O and Sleater-Kinney on the map.” – Ryan Saar, Fbi Radio/Soundly Sounds
