Juliette Commagere is an LA born singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who has always been highly in demand as a performer. She has shared the stage with a number of acts, such as Bat For Lashes, the Foo Fighters and Linda Perry. She has also collaborated with TOOL and Perfect Circle’s very own Maynard James Keenan on a remix of her track, Vampire.
Recently featured in Rolling Stone, Juliette has been working very hard on writing, recording and performing in the States. She had also been rehearsing for her exclusive BBC LIVE London Radio Show which took place at the BBC London HQ yesterday, 17 February.
Collide is taken from Juliette’s new album, Human. This track exposes her slightly darker side. The synth driven drum-beats and electronic effects have added an industrial-like edge to Juliette’s sound which curiously contrasts with her soft and delicate lead vocals. The friction between her haunting voice and the self-contained arrangement create an interesting blend that pushes Juliette out of her comfort zone.
With a hint of Foxes, a touch of Young Galaxy and a trace of Sia, Collide invites mystery, femininity, edge and intrigue to its sound scape. The catchy synth-bass groove would be enough to make the song stand out on its own but it’s the combination of Juliette’s sweet vocals and the impressive electronic production that solidify it. The ethereal voice carries beautifully throughout the track and leads each beat with inner strength and precision.
Collide is a stunning song worth listening to and it will be available for sale and download on 11 March.
