Lil Julez

Completely dedicated to the wonderfully trashy 60s and 90s aesthetics and combined with the current sound of the Gen Z indie movement, the 23-year-old prodigy already convinced with his charismatic voice and a golden touch for great melodies. With his first two singles he was listed on numerous radio stations throughout Europe, he stormed into the Top 10 of the national FM4 radio charts and also convinced as an exciting live act and support for indie greats like Geese from New York.

Considered a hot insider tip since his debut in spring 2022 at the latest, Lil Julez underlines his huge talent once again with his latest single „Humanless Dogs“. And he also surprises us with the content: „The song is about Max Martin’s songwriting empire. It’s a kind of parody and is generally about artists who have their songs written by others. And how these songwriters feel about it, while they specifically compose for others. I’m also speaking from my own experience.“

Lil Julez generally counts himself as part of the global bedroom pop movement, naming Boy Pablo, Pink Pantheress, Mac Demarco or Steve Lacy among others as part of his musical influences – all international greats of the genre. A certain amount of humor is also an essential part of the songwriting process – Lil Julez’s lyrics often seem ironic or almost absurd to leave as much room for interpretation as possible. He also has very specific guidelines when it comes to selecting individual sounds. A guitar sound, for example, may sound „like a mixture of Spongebob and the Beatles“, and Julez generally likes electronic drums that are also strongly inspired by hip-hop.

The debut album „It Was A Hoax“ is announced for March 24, 2023.
