Julia Weldon has a unique vibe that comes across constantly on her latest album Light Is a Ghost. Weldon's sound feels like a mix of EDM influences, smooth pop music and the entire album feels like a new modern direction.
Light is a Ghost is the sophomore album from the Brooklyn indie-folk-pop artist. Her self-titled debut album in 2008 was strong but this album takes Weldon to the next level both musically and in production.
Weldon's vocals have a very similar sound to that of Ellie Goulding and the instrumentals could be switched out for an Alex Clare track with ease.
She has the ability of truly telling stories larger than her own on the record. Weldon tells the stories of harsh realities mixed with limitless, open spaces.
The album takes the time to unfold and gives each single the spotlight that it deserves. The album feels like a whole story but it takes the time to set up the plot and really showcases Weldon as a vocalist and musician.
Stand out tracks on the album include, "Light is A Ghost," "Careful in the Dark" and "All I Gave Her."
As the pop music industry embraces more influences and moves towards a more produced, modern sound, artists are embracing the creativity that this new transition allows. Julia Weldon is releasing this album at the right time and this album will take off before the end of 2013.
