Sweden based artist and producer Julia Jonas is releasing new single Lift You High, taken from the forthcoming EP Air which sees her sharing her honest and at times challenging life experiences. The new track combines introspection with the idea of perseverance and patience – whilst dealing with struggle, the overall message is one of hope. It’s delicate and lingering, shimmering with understated emotion.
She says that ‘the track reflects a feeling of loneliness and alienation when feeling pressured to fit in but having the strength to strive for diversity and tolerance despite it. Being quite obviously different in a world where people strive for uniformity creates very strong feelings of loneliness and exclusion. In this case I was inspired by people with a sexual orientation that deviates from the majority. When your identity is the difference that separates you from the majority, you easily feel judged and rejected.’
