What happens when you take Nirvana, but not “Smells Like Teen Spirit” Nirvana, but instead “Kurt Cobain during the MTV Unplugged” Nirvana, and take that sound, still grungey and earnest but with a slow and moody almost dark country drawl and vibe, and build it back up from the ground into a full band femme fatale project with Pixies-esque guitar lines and methodical drums? When that happens, you open the door for Julie Cira to enter the room, and you will never be the same again. Whether solo or accompanied by her band, Julie Cira and The Wake stretches songcraft from soft and slow to heavy and fast, and mixes it up with everything in between. Check out her newest single, recorded with GreenLine Records, a Northeastern student record label operating out of the college which is bringing new talent to the spotlight. Today check out their new single “Reckless”, a collab between GLR and the band, and continue to check out their work as they play regional shows around New England!
