LATE STAGE DREAM
‘Late Stage Dream’ is the latest EP from Cape Town glitter punks Julia Robert. It will be going live on 10 July. With this release these two girls and two boys have put together three incredibly dense and heavy songs accompanied by probably one of their lightest and airiest tracks yet. It’s a varied release with stylistic and linguistic surprises throughout, and we’re incredibly excited to share it with the world.

Through the four tracks the gang of old friends wear their influences proudly; with the cuts taking inspiration from new wave to punk to pop and even a bit of saturated grunge. The album’s lyrical themes of self examination, feminism, making babies, and raging against systems that keep us anxious have taken on different meanings in the current existentially fraught world we live. In the last six months everything has changed, and Julia Robert's music is evolving along with it.
‘Late Stage Dream’ was recorded over a weekend in the leafy 'burbs of Durbanville at The Fresh Meat Studio. The band wanted a heavier and more ragged sound compared to the more polished and measured 'Pop Bullies'. They handed the keys over to long-time collaborator and trusted pineapple boy, Warren Fisher, who recorded and mixed the tracks.
The band has been quietly working away on a bunch of top-secret projects, one is a hand-illustrated video in production that will accompany the second single, Starkes Mädchen. That will be released on 3 July. As for the rest... Well you'll just have to wait and see.
