Julie Elody, a pop singer and songwriter from New Orleans, has released “Queen of Wands”, her latest collection of tracks. The EP has an electronic sound from front to back, but explores different styles within the genre. “She’s Killin It” features Nicola Fasano, known for his 2012 hit with Pitbull “I Know You Want Me”. It’s tight latin drum beats and brass stabs take center stage. A similar style is found in the opening track, “Relatable”. in tracks like “The Lighthouse” , Elody switches to a dubstep-esque instrumental. The variety of electronic genres represented in “Queen of Wands” adds to its strength.
Elody describes her sound as “pop music with lyrics that don’t suck”. She’s right. Her lyrics have a much higher level of maturity than seen in many of her pop contemporaries. Intellectual writing, top-notch vocals, and stellar production contribute to the high overall quality of this EP.
