The Mission Church
“Her music is deeply, powerfully emotive, but it doesn't so much express emotions as conjure them; it feels not so much like soaring through clouds as being made one with them.” -Pitchfork
Julianna Barwick is singer and composer who builds hypnotic and expansive songs through the layering and looping her often-wordless singing and synthesizers. Rooted in church singing, Barwick achieves the effect of massed voices through the electronic manipulation of her own solo voice. Her albums have been widely critically-acclaimed at outlets such as Pitchfork and NPR.
