American alternative pop-rock singer songwriter Juliet Callahan is back with her new single ‘Venom’. Blending elements of electronic-pop with distorted, amplified instrumental, Callahan’s tracks see her melodic, hypnotic vocals float above a multifaceted, genre bending backdrop.
The new single ‘Venom’, is a prime example of her work – trap beats, deep sub bass and airy synths mixed with grungy guitar lines and Callahan’s ethereal, haunting and effortlessly pin-point, silky vocal delivery. Dark, melancholic and yet retaining a commercial accessibility, the single balances itself perfectly, capturing a musical complexity and unique soundscape under its pop exterior.
Talking about the single, Juliet Callahan explains: “Venom is about facing the pain that is rooted in people who have turned their back on you or hurt you to whom you still feel connected. It is about processing that pain by letting go and realizing that you cannot change them or the outcome of the situation. It is about learning to love yourself when you are alone with your thoughts and about self-empowerment.”
Touching on many raw emotions through her writing, from heartbreak, to love and relationships, Juliet uses her music as a cathartic healing process whilst also writing songs which can be relatable and can also offer a healing process for her listeners: “Writing is my therapeutic outlet to express myself. But I am also deeply motivated to write to whoever may be listening so that you all can feel like you’re not alone through the milestones we all face in the ups and downs of life. To know that others find solace in my music makes me feel complete and motivates me to keep working hard in a tough industry.”
Inspired by a range of artists including Lil Peep, Tom Petty, Stevie Nicks, Linkin Park, Lady Gaga, and Limp Bizkit, Juliet possesses a drive and determination to create her own unique sound and express her realist message to the public while simultaneously working through her own inner demons. A rapidly growing independent artist with a lot of potential, Juliet Callahan’s new single ‘Venom’ is released 5th August.
