Giving us a taste of her upcoming, honestly titled EP, ‘I ruined the relationship with the love of my life‘, Swedish soul singer Juli Capelius has released a new single Gemini. With this, she’s served us a vibrant, smooth soul song in a modern production, perfect for a sunny day at the beach or a warm summer evening in good company.
It’s such an enjoyable track it would heat a cold day too!
Gemini* is a soul track layered in delicate details and an assured performance from Juli Capelius. Through her singing style, we can hear she is right where she should be. And as a cherry on top, she has a charming, jazzy voice. Produced by Kalle Erkenborn (aka FAMILY_TIME), the track has a groove and smooth vibe, with a chorus that both rhythmically and melodically hooks even an inattentive listener.
What also strikes us about this new song is its lyrics. It is fun and flirty and plays on being indecisive and wanting two contradictory things simultaneously. She explores the dilemma that revolves around astrology and being a Gemini, but this can be interpreted metaphorically and literally.
It is undoubtedly a challenge to stand out in today’s music industry, with the number of songs released daily – 60,000 per day according to Spotify. However, a strong theme and unique lyrics such as Gemini means Juli Capelius manages to do that.
