The sultry songstress breaks into the scene with an R&B and pop-influenced track
Singer-songwriter Julia Duclos officially makes her mark in the music scene with debut single, ‘Further’. The 23-year-old hails from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and is a familiar face in the local open mic scene. She takes her music one step further today by sharing with Asian Pop Radio the release of her ethereal, mid-tempo ballad.
While Julia defines her voice as “soft, gentle and heartfelt”, she refrains from classifying ‘Further’ into one specific genre. Instead, she wants the song and her music to be relatable and enjoyed by fans of any genre of music. One quick listen to the easy sounds of ‘Further’ and it’s clear to see that Julia’s sound is genre-defying; easily combining smooth R&B vibes with subtle pop influences and hints of jazz.
Penned-based on Julia’s own personal experience, ‘Further’ is a song about two people in love, who begin to grow apart due to distance. However, through the distance, they begin to learn more about themselves and each other. As the song was written and told from a woman’s point of view, Julia hopes women will see that the end of the relationship isn’t the end of everything. ✊✊✊
“‘Further’ really is about realising that you don’t have to be dependent on someone else to make yourself feel whole. Sometimes, you really do need that distance to get closer to who you really are,” Julia said of the heartbreak anthem.
‘Further’ was produced by prolific Singaporean artist, heartthrob and producer Charlie Lim, and recorded in Singapore. Charlie Lim is no stranger to Asian Pop Radio! We saw him perform twice in Australia at Brisbane Music Festival and the Asia Pop Fest at Sidney Myer Music Bowl in 2017.
“Working with Charlie was serendipitous as just months before, I had discovered his music and was wondering how I could work with him,” Julia said. “When I was given the chance to meet with him, it just felt like it was meant to be.”
