If you’ve read our interview with Grimes—and I cannot think of one single reason why you wouldn’t have—you’ll recognize the name Julia Holter as someone Grimes says is “very, very, very good.” That’s three very’s, that’s serious business. High praise from Grimes? Worth checking out.
Here we have a nicely understated video for “Moni, Mon Amie.” It’s simple, just Holter and her piano at the Cafe Glassell. It’s a tender performance, mysterious, breathy, and showcasing her haunting voice. I think my heart is broken. Give the video another look, it will be.
Holter’s album is called Ekstasis, pick it up from RVNG Intl.
