Hello Stranger frontwoman Juliette Commagere Sets New Album Release
The LA-based musician first appeared in the spotlight as the keytar-slinging frontwoman Hello Stranger, a 70's glam-inspired band who went on to open for heavy-hitters such as Foo Fighters, Kings of Leon, and Against Me! This led her to an eclectic series of collaborations. She's performed with fellow Silverlake success The Bird and The Bee across the US and on multiple network TV shows.
On The Procession, Juliette has created a work that sounds thoroughly modern and timeless at the same time. She achieves this by fusing her love of classical music with her penchant for electronic soundscapes.
Opening track "Eats from the Inside," highlights the album's sonic range. Commagere's bittersweet vocals lay on a slow-burning, atmospheric bed of synths before tribal drums and moody strings burst in to add drama. "Impact" strikes more of an up-tempo vibe with its breezy, island rhythms and "How I Look For You" has the album's most unabashedly infectious chorus. Legendary experimental musician and Brian Eno collaborator Jon Hassell appears on the eerie and ambient "Plantsong."
