NYC-based singer-songwriter Julia Segal has shared her third stellar single, 'Run It Back', available everywhere today.
Following the release of previous single '24', Julia's latest is a reflection of the fallout of a relationship - memories that feel distant yet close, tumbling thoughts and re-running every moment. A song that shines through simple, acoustic production, it's a perfect blend of heartfelt melodies and raw, confessional songwriting. Repetitive piano melodies capture the longing and nostalgia after a relationship has faded away, with missed calls illustrated with a voicemail ringtone and a distorted sample of Julia’s voice saying, "please leave a message”.
Julia’s vocals convey a deep emotional yearning, with a warm tone and probing lyrics. The mellow soundscape gives space for the silence of reflection and the silence of new loneliness. Speaking about the single, Julia shared, “’Run It Back’ is the most vulnerable song I’ve written. It comes from the depths of heartbreak when you can’t stop replaying moments and memories. When you’re in that space of wondering if you’ll ever truly be able to move on and release your attachment to that person.”
Mixed and mastered by Ben Coleman, with vocal mixing by Matt Francisco, the song is a powerful re-introduction to Julia's music, delivering a release that is accessible, entertaining, and instantly ensnaring.
Along with her solo releases, Julia is also the vocalist and songwriter for the electronic pop duoNot the Ending with producer Without the San. They released their debut single 'Give It Time (Fading)' in August. In addition to songwriting, Julia is an actor and a Teaching Artist for Treasure Trunk Theatre in Brooklyn. She is also a member of Maestra Music and sings for the Young New Yorkers’ Chorus.
Julia performs her original music at venues across New York City, most recently at SOB’s, DROM NYC with MajorStage and Berlin Under A and Kobrick Coffee with Breaking Sound NYC. She has also performed in LA at Adults Only and in Boston at Bill’s Bar.
