Julia Deans the Panic Available Today

Julia Deans
the Panic
Available Today

Following the Greg Page animated video release on Tuesday; Julia Deans's The Panic is available on all streaming platforms and to purchase today.

The Panic is a song about learning to live with fears, anxieties and depression. And like the video suggests, talks to working out how to rein these feelings in before they become all consuming.

“The Panic offers a change in pace from Deans' balladic recent tunes, with Gary Numan-esque chugging robo-pop production contrasting nicely with the artist's crystalline vocal delivery.” Under The Radar

“Based around a guitar riff that came to her in a dream, fully-formed, The Panic is a more head-down, arse-up rock track. It could almost be a classic old-school Fur Patrol song, the kind of thing they might have once unleashed on drunken punters speeding off their nuts in assorted Melbourne rock bars.” –Sunday Star Times

The Panic is the third single of Julia’s 10-track album We Light Fire due for release on May 11th.

It is an album inspired by world events, friends and family; an album of songs that examine both what it means to be human, and our spectrum of strength and vulnerability.

New Zealand will soon have the opportunity to hear both the beautiful songs from We Light Fire as well as retrospective hits as Julia embarks on a seven-date tour supporting Marlon Williams this May.

Joseph Cederwall Review: NZSO Plays Zappa

The first of the NZSO’s Shed Series concerts at the more informal and intimate space of Wellington's Shed 6 last Friday night featured music composed by, or with a connection to Frank Zappa. Zappa, a psychedelic rock legend, activist and popular culture figure and all round colourful character, was an excellent choice for the concert’s theme of innovation. More>>

Scoop Review of Books: Martin Edmonds' The Expatriates

This book is an extension of, and tribute to, the life’s work of James McNeish. Without sacrificing any degree of authorial independence, the result is gracefully written, handsomely produced, and likely to propagate many further works of its kind. More>>

Joe Cederwall Review: WOMAD 2018 - Harmony of Difference (part 1)

A friend described WOMAD as his “favourite white middle class celebration of diversity.” There is certainly an echo of truth to this as the crowd is still largely white and middle class, but this WOMAD for me represented that a better world is possible ... More>>

Harmony of Difference (part 2)

Top international world music artists seldom make it down to this neck of the woods, so for those of us into this sort of thing WOMAD is certainly a welcome addition to the cultural calendar. Now it is a case of waiting and looking forward to seeing what they manage to conjure up for next year. More>>

Howard Davis Review: A Bigger Splash - Te Papa Celebrates Twenty Years

Considering the available resources, this is a decidedly hit-and-miss affair, mainly due to some highly questionable curatorial decisions. In their overweening wish to "push boundaries," Charlotte Davy and Megan Tamati-Quennell have made a number of serious miscalculations by ignoring a basic rule - keep it simple. More>>
