Brooklyn recording artist Julianna Barwick has announced a headlining tour for early 2014 that includes a stop the First Unitarian Church‘s Side Chapel on February 9th. Barwick released her third full-length Nepenthe this year, which won praise from Pitchfork, the New York Times, NPR and many other publications.  Nepenthe showcased the Louisiana native’s adaptation of her church choir roots in an electronica setting, looping her vocals and instruments in a haunting, atmospheric and striking way. Tickets and information for the all-ages show can be found here. Watch her video for “The Harbinger” below.

Keeping true to her meditative sound of layered voices and atmospheric acoustics, Julianna Barwick”s video for “One Half,” a song from her upcoming album, Nepenthe, finds her other half in an illusory state enhanced by her whispering vocals. Close ups of Barwick’s hand holding an elegantly decorative knife, eyes, and a Victorian dress are cut in between shots of her demolishing a small tower of flowers on top of fruit and drizzling icing. Barwick will be touring with Iceland’s ethereal post rock outfit, Sigur Ros, and will be opening for them at their Mann Center show, September 20th. Find more information and tickets for the September show here.

Watch the video for “One Half” below.
