Julia Holter has become something of a modern auteur of dream pop, releasing articulate, imaginative records since 2012’s breakthrough Ekstasis. Something In The Room She Moves, Holter’s first album since 2018’s Avairy, expands textures and ideas she has explored before to the extent of their elasticity.

The record embodies a spirit of spontaneity and fun, while also containing some of Holter’s best melodic ideas and satisfying arrangements. Writing Blind articulates the dread of creative inertia, while magnificent centrepiece Spinning is a celebration of imagination. It’s a record that finds Holter at the peak of her imaginative powers, and feels like a cumulation of everything that she has done before, while gazing forward into the horizon, always with the desire to explore.
