Canada’s NOBRO have this week shared their new single, Julia, which follows on last month’s release Better Each Day. The new single was mixed by two time Grammy award winning engineer, Dave Schiffman, who has previously worked with the likes of Vampire Weekend, Haim and Adele.

Julia features lead vocalist Kathryn McCaughey’s flamboyant, confident yell and combines that with fierce and intense bass lines which are held together by Sarah Dion’s signature drums, exciting riffs from guitarist Karolane Carbonneu and stunning keyboard and bongo solos from percussion-master Lisandre Bourdages, cementing NOBRO as a rock n roll force.


Speaking about the track, McCaughey states:

The song almost wrote itself, The ‘Julia-ya ya’ hook had been in my head for a couple days and with the help of our producer Thom D’Arcy we put together enough of a demo to make the song make sense, but the real magic happened when we went to record it. We couldn’t decide on a speed at first because our normal ‘shred your face off’ pace wasn’t the vibe, but then we decided it was OK to live life mid-tempo. And voilà, the song was born.

The formation of NOBRO came to be as Kathryn started the band, almost as a challenge to herself after the demise of her relationship with a prominent Montreal based musician, wanting herself to be ‘more than just a footnote on a Wikipedia page’. After finding her fellow band members, there was a realisation that they were all ignited by each other – helping them to become one of the most exciting rock bands around right now.
