Julia Shapiro Shares Video for New Single ‘Wrong Time’

    Julia Shapiro has unveiled a new single called ‘Wrong Time’, alongside an accompanying music video. The track is taken from her upcoming album Zorked, which will follow 2019’s Perfect Version and includes the previously released singles ‘Come With Me’ and the ‘Death (XIII)’. Check out the Colby Makin-directed visual below.

    “I wrote this song in June 2020, after fully coming to terms with the fact that I was now living in LA during a seemingly never-ending global pandemic,” Shapiro explained in a statement. “This song is about being cursed, but not fully admitting it—fighting hard to keep your life together, against all odds, and cursing yourself even further in the process.”

    Colby Makin added of the video: “‘Wrong Time’ visualises the internal feedback loop of stuck-at-home limbo. Once vaccinated, Julia and I spent a lazy afternoon filming some of her typical 2020 day-to-day routines: puttering in her room, scooting around the neighborhood, playing guitar on her bed. I then holed myself in my own room, experimenting with our footage using an analog video mixer and some old camcorders. The result was a surprisingly ambient collage of textures and clouds. Julia is leading the way, but the video ended up feeling more like a collective reflection of those drifty days we all shared from afar. By the end I found a warm comfort in all the blue!”

    Zorked arrives October 15 via Suicide Squeeze.
