Julia Bardo – Do This To Me

The first time I heard Julia Bardoโ€™s new single, I though it was former 10,000 Maniacs singer Natalie Merchant. But she isnโ€™t, obviously.

Bardo was born in Northern Italy. There, she sang and wrote lyrics for a local band between shifts at her fatherโ€™s bar. After relocating to Manchester, she joined post-punk band Working Menโ€™s Club. Nowadays however, sheโ€™s working hard to develop her solo career. She already supported Blossoms live, and played her own headline shows.

10 September, sheโ€™ll release her debut album Bauhaus, Lโ€™Appartamento. It was named after the apartment complex she lived in when demoing the albumโ€™s recordings, but with an Italian twist. Ahead of the long-player, she just released her new single. โ€œDo This To Me is a very personal song about feeling abandoned, growing up and familyโ€, according to the singer, songwriter and guitarist.

The introspective lyrics are accompanied by a charming, lush and laid-back melody. After listening, youโ€™ll probably forgive me for mistaking Julia Bardo for Natalie Merchant, both vocally and musically.
