about

"Juleah's third LP Desert Skies is quite possibly her finest collection of songs to date. Hailing from Vorarlberg in the west of Austria, her soothing take on dream pop and psychedelia recalls the likes of Mazzy Star and Josefin Ohrn."
- Drowned In Sound

"Auf ihrem dritten Album Desert Skies geht die Vorarlbergerin Julia Hummer vollends in ihren Sujets auf. Als Juleah frönt sie US-amerikanischen Fantasien, die sie in mit viel Liebe zum Detail hingerotzten Songs hörbar macht. Kein technischer Firlefanz, stattdessen straightes Songwriting und den Horizont als Sehnsuchtsort vorm Auge. Am Weg dorthin verinnerlicht sie Strawberry Shakes, lernt Darkness kennen oder lässt das Vinyl eines Fundstücks on the road knistern. Musik, die alle Klischees ihrer Themen kennt, sie gekonnt umschifft und sie am Ende dennoch emotional bedient. Sehr super.
- Karl Fluch, DER STANDARD

Track Name: Skies
Oh my dear, I’m out of my control
I’m riding to your timezone
Yeah, don’t pull me to limbo's eyes

Oh come on, let’s lay it on the line
I’m up to burst from lows and highs
I’d take you closer, closer to the edge
I’d take you closer, faster than you’d think

I’ve been the
Been the loser
I was from the beginning on
Into a pit
A pit of hunger
Into a pit I fall

I fly to joyous grace
I bathe in flowered skies
Am I treasured in your heart
Confess that I am
I wait devoted in gilded highs
Bitterness is clashing me down
Just to matter is my desire
Unveil, confess that I do

Well I guess, I gotta walk it through
The road that’s leading
That’s not leading to you
I poise round the undertow
I’ll run, as long as you go
Track Name: Strawberry Shake
I shook the bushes
I shook the trees
I shook em all day long
For strawberrys

You wanted sweetness
And you got me
I brought you tunes and berries
To shake with me

We move in time
Shake your body next to mine
We move in time
Shake your body next to mine
Track Name: Analogue
Screens are gonna eat me
Up inside
Data’s gonna flood me
Till I’m drowning
Low battery
I fear that I must die
I’m sick of it all
Losing touch to all things alive

High on junk, that’s what we are
They and us and I and you
I must scroll forevermore
Wait, I need my dosage

Let’s soak up some daylight
Sit down and breath
Let’s watch em appear
The faces, flowers, butterflies
Take your pictures
With your brain
Takes some breaks
Recharge
In analogue life
Track Name: Kahlua
Hand me a Kahlua, the world is coming down
Here’s to no tomorrows, here’s to closing down

Enjoy the moment
Unique in time
Let it be the last one
The freaking last one tonight

Let me say it’s over, it is gone
I’m broken, I’m damaged
I’m lost and I am tired
Too many fires died

Ease just come and get me, I waited for the end
I awaited your arrival, take me by my hand

Oh how I’m glad I made it, wave goodbye to me
My heart it isn’t aching, I’ll land in sacred fields

So raise your glasses
The last of times
Let it be the last one
The freaking last one tonight

Let me say, it’s over, it is gone
I’m broken, I’m damaged
I’m lost and I am tired
Too many fires died
Track Name: Catch-22
We met in a cage full of borders
Full of walls that keep us apart
Our eyes they meet, our bodies parted
Divided by a sheet of glass

It’s a waste, slow suicide
It’s a waste, slow suicide
It’s a waste, slow suicide
It’s a waste, so it’s goodbye

You shall never see me again
Cause I’d starve in your presence for ages on end
You shall wonder, what happened to her?
But you won’t, cause you don’t fucking care

You said that you had the answers
You claimed you knew the way out
We're stranded on these shores, don't you see
I gotta save my soul

Save my soul
It’s a waste, slow suicide
Save my soul
It’s a waste, slow suicide
Save my soul
It’s a waste, slow suicide
My soul
It’s a waste, so it’s goodbye

You shall never see me again
Cause I’d starve in your presence for ages on end
You shall wonder, what happened to her?
But you won’t, cause you don’t fucking care
Track Name: Black Vanilla
Your sight is pure and cinnamon
Your flavour dark and sweet
Your presence is my medicine
Your image brings me peace
Won’t you feel that I’m wounded
Won’t you see that I’m cold
Black Vanilla’s what I called you
I’m waiting for you, for my relief

I conquered wildest dreams
I crushed my wildest fears
I did it all for you
Black Vanilla

It ain’t filling my void
It doesn’t even warm
Made all my senses drunken
Leaves me all alone

I conquered wildest dreams
I crushed my wildest fears
I did it all for you
Black Vanilla

I did it all for you
And I’ll keep going
I did it all for you
I’ll never stop
Track Name: Red Moon
Red Moon
Come alive
You shine on me
Red Moon
Come climb
You shine on others

Red Moon
Come alive
You shine on me
Red Moon
Come climb
You shine on others

Be my light
Be my guide

Well
Red Moon Rise
Well
Red Moon Rise

Well
Red Moon Rise
Track Name: Closer
Light and promise
And wisdom from your well
Love and kisses
And sugar from your palm

Wisdom from your well
Sugar from your palm

We merge into one

Come a little closer baby
Until we touch and merge into one
Lift the wall between us baby
My thornes, ignore em, come
Give me love and kisses
And sugar from your palm
All my life I’m longing
I waited oh so long

We merge into one

Come a little close baby
Until we touch, until we bond
Lift the wall between us baby
I wanna drink, I wanna grow
Give me light and promise
And wisdom from your well
All my life I’m longing
I waited oh so long
Track Name: Darkness
You’re alone
Like all of us are
You’re afraid
So get used to it all

Come to the art show
And live
I’ll show you
Darkness

Don’t tell me
What we don’t understand
Here’s a truth
There’s no saviour to come

Come to the art show
And live
I’ll show you
Darkness

Look in its eye
Track Name: The Garden
A maze, a light, a sigh
My pain, my fear and I
Need my whole life getting trough
Silence guide me right into

Just down I’m going
And I seek truth and corals
I found void and easing
The garden stays amazing

Just revolve ‘round I am who
My pain, my fear and you
Empty canvas all in white
I’m a searcher low on ride

Just down I’m going
And I seek truth and corals
I found void and easing
The journey goes in mazes
And nothing’s soothing
Alone I’m feeling
I’ll just go exploring
The garden stays amazing

When nothing’s staying
Down
Alone I’m feeling
All the things I’m digging up
Up
Flowing
Up
