One quarter of the band Chastity Belt, it would probably be fair to say that Julia Shapiro has had a mixed year. Shapiro returned from a cancelled Chastity Belt tour in April 2018 in poor health. She was going through a bout of depression. But amidst an engulfing uncertainty, she learned to mix her own music and eventually went on to record a collection of songs that will form Perfect Vision, her debut solo album (June 14th via Hardly Art).
“How can you love yourself so damn much, it isn’t natural”, she sings on first single ‘Natural’. Released earlier this month, it’s a tender ode to self-doubt and a hugely exciting sign of things to come from an album all about self-improvement.
