Julian Skiboat has been on my radar for quite some time, building a substantial buzz through Soundcloud singles and demos enamoring fans with great guitar melodies and poetic lyrics that tugged on heart strings fit for viral Tumblr posts of the past. Now a few years later, Julian is releasing across all DSP’s and his latest single, “coffee” is geared up to be a playlisting earworm.
“coffee” is a slow burning beauty, opening with Julian and his trusty guitar melodies, joined a little later by a simple drum machine rhythm. Julian has always had as songwriter’s knack of sticky choruses that you can’t help but hum along to. Parts loving, parts lonely and fearful, Julian finds that soft spot of real life emotions that a lot of other artists tend to not dig in to as much. Julian definitely found his stride in 2020 as one of the bright up and coming artists of the indie scene, and “coffee” is a perfect song to wrap up the year of releases for Julian.
