Julie Feeney - New Single 'Dear John'

Julie Feeney, 'Dear John'

Julie Feeney is back with a new single ‘Dear John’ from her phenomenal album ‘Clocks’. This is Julie’s third album that she self-produced in November, 2012, and it went straight into the Independent Irish Album Charts at No. 1 and was voted 'Best Album' 2012 in The Irish Times 'Album of the Year' category for The Ticket Awards as voted by The Irish Times readers. 

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.
