looped, wordless vocals & minimal instrumental arrangements build lush, ambient folk soundscapes straddling the accessible & avant-garde in a deeply harmonious fashion.

barwick's music is equal parts force & beauty, finding its motor in significant events in her own life but they are abstracted into a sense of sonic wonderment, a radiance that you could say is her signature sound. recorded in iceland with members of sometime sigur ros collaborators amiina, the songs hang suspended in the same ethereal atmosphere & share the same glacial melodic beauty as other musicians from that country, but are stamped with the artistic hallmark of julianna's thirst for mesmerising aural bliss. "this is the exquisite album we were promised, & perhaps an important one" 9/10 - drowned in sound "nepenthe makes the world seem a much more serene & beautiful place" 9/10 - line of best fit.
