Julie Feeney, 'Dear John'
The video for ‘Dear John’ premiered on USA Today after her sell-out 10 show run in New York City. The video matches the wide-eyed wonder of her art-pop song and if the song's title foretells of sad things, the song itself is something altogether different, a vintage concoction of harpsichord, harp and strings. The video features Julie on a contraption called a Pedal Praxinoscope which is an interactive sculpture, designed by artist Emily Robyn Archer and technician Conor MacCauge, based on an early moving-image machine called the Praxinoscope and made from reclaimed bicycles, wood, mirror and vinyl.
Julie has had an amazing 2013, she released Clocks in the US & UK to which it received critical acclaim including an 8/10 review in Uncut. Hailed by the New York Times as “charming, urbane and dreamy…theatrical on the shell, intricate at the core”, Julie’s sound is unquestionably original, rooted in classical whilst comfortably straddling pop and theatre. ‘Clocks’ was written in Ballinahinch Castle and Lough Inagh Cottages in Galway and recorded at Kylemore Abbey Gothic Church, a return to home ground for Julie. She has also performed to packed crowds this year at the Big House Festival & Westport Music & Arts Festival this summer and sold out a performance at the National Concert Hall in Dublin.
‘Dear John’ is available on iTunes on the 7th of February 2014 and you can also purchase the album Clocks here on Julie's website
