Ju­lianna Bar­wick: singing without words

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - Music -

Bar­wick has been per­fect­ing that stream­lined sound for a cou­ple of years. Her pre­vi­ous release, San­guine, caused vast swathes of mu­sic blog­gers to swoon in uni­son.

“Singing without words is some­thing I’ve al­ways done,” says Bar­wick. “I just kind of make up my own lan­guage. I re­mem­ber do­ing that when I was a kid very clearly, even singing along to the Dal­las theme tune in a made-up lan­guage. It’s most comfortable for me to just sing what­ever pops into my head, and con­cen­trate most of all on the sound.”
