Divus Julius presents: Willie J Healey

Willie J Healey comes from Oxford and within five years he has managed to establish himself as one of England’s most distinctive young composers. Up until now, he has released two full-length albums (“People and Their Dogs” and “Twin Heavy”), which stood out thanks to his sharp lyrical humor and brilliant pop melodies, and 2023 is expected to be the most important year of his career so far.

This spring he will release his third album, entitled “Bunny”, where he leaves pop music behind and draws inspiration from funk, soul and R&B, and will follow Arctic Monkeys on their European tour that will bring them to Athens on Wednesday 19th of July.

Divus Julius presents: The Motet

Since 1998, The Motet have inspired the world with their unique style of dance music. Over the course of nine full-length albums, they’ve traversed the lines between funk, soul, jazz, and rock and built a diehard audience in the process.

The Motet’s latest album, All Day, is sure to get fans talking with its lead single, “79,” a retro-futurist blend of lavish funk and soul that takes listeners back to the funky past of the 70s and 80s, while fortifying its pastiche with decidedly modern elements. The band’s latest release, “Draccus,” is a hazy, funk-fueled track filled to the brim with lush sonic details and powerful lyricism, juxtaposing grim verses with cathartic, hopeful choruses.

Divus Julius presents: The Veils

It’s been seven strange years since New Zealand-based indie legends Veils’ last and sixth studio album Total Depravity, and Finn Andrews has a new double LP to show for it. …And Out Of The Void Came Love is the result of this tumultuous period of injury, isolation and new life…

The single is a rich, luxurious delight – delivered with a preacher-like intensity that recalls Nick Cave on the pulpit, and cloaked in an anthemic statuesque finery with sweeping strings and shimmering, sparkling instrumentation. This is a grand presentation: an ebbing and flowing sonic embrace with an endless horizon and a celestial glory.

Divus Julius presents: George FitzGerald

The Englishman was at the very heart of the birth of dubstep, first as an employee at Black Market Records in London and later organizing the Man Make Music parties. In 2010 he relocated to Berlin, where he began to release material he had previously worked on for a number of years. FitzGerald has always been open minded to many musical genres in which house, bass music and garage happily sit alongside each other, releasing music on some of the most interesting new European electronic music labels.

 On his third album Stellar DriftingGeorge FitzGerald unveils a record of wide-eyed wonder and emotion, filled with glistening melodies and iridescent electronics. 

Divus Julius presents: Quinn Christopherson

Alaskan native Quinn Christopherson delves deep into the complexities of identity and vulnerability on debut album Write Your Name In Pink. Shot into the spotlight following his win of NPR’s 2019 Tiny Desk Contest, the songwriter’s exploration of gratitude and familial relationships form a wonderland of synth-tinged pop, spanning beautiful minimalism in isolated vocals that meld skilfully with lush choral uprisings.
