Julian Shah-Tayler has released his new video for the single titled ‘Fall Apart’. As a somber and slightly melancholic transition from his latest album ‘Elysium‘ to that great blank slate known as the future, Julian’s creativity and signature sound is at that next step of evolution.
Julian is one of those artists that quickly become that not so hidden gem in your album collection or Spotify playlist. While I think his music demands the power behind a full stereo, the feeling of each track shines just as well on earbuds.
With ‘Fall Apart’, both the video and song convey the artistry and energy of Julian as an artist and shows the world that originality is alive and well in the music scene. While the song is as signature as anything on ‘Elysium’, there is a catalyst within the song that precipitates what lies next in this organically legendary musical journey. A bridge, so to speak, to that next set of songs. ‘Fall Apart’, to me, is a timestamp. Not just for the artist, but for me, as a listener. It is now something I can listen to again and again. To enjoy, or employ as a soundtrack to a future memory. It has that type of staying power. A certain panache lets you feel as you listen.
