The recently released Broken Love EP is an elegant 4-song collection that traverses all intersections of American music: folk, jazz, blues, and soul with a dreamy sprawl that's both earthy and otherworldly. The tragic romance in her writing, and the eerie beauty of her compositions, make her EP boldly vulnerable. "My music is emotionally raw," Julie Kathrynsays. "The title 'Broken Love' is something a lot of people can relate to. The track is powerfully essential, with each instrument playing with gorgeous restraint. Subtle production flourishes like stately strings, tastefully glitchy percussion loops, and celestial lap steel melodies lend the track, and the EP, a wonderfully transcendent moodiness.
