Experimental Musician, Iuliano, maintains an air of mystery and a captivating elusiveness throughout his artistry and latest single release, “Who Knows”. Although the music video for “Who Knows” is out now on YouTube, we snagged a copy of the upcoming EP release, ‘Hidden Roots’, which houses the lead single and more; here’s our thoughts.
Kicking off with the first track, “The Hidden Root”, iuliano lyrically dives into the core of the disconnection that he feels with another and swiftly transforms the song into a funky experimental array of instrumentals that create the feeling that an individual is waxing and waning through a variety of emotions. The second track, “Comfortable Lies”, slowly strums into the reality of uncomfortably when it comes to the white lies that need to be called out and confronted as Iuliano slips and slides through his seasoned instrumental prowess with wit and style. “Not a Sound” is the third track that begins with a potently soulful piano that mimics the likes of Yoshiki as Iuliano creates a slow jam that lyrically travels through feelings of heartache with profound vulnerability.
The fourth track and lead single, “Who Knows”, gives the impression that Iuliano is channeling the instrumental essence of Yes as he subtly explores living a life of of fluidity and creates the aura of inner peace when it comes to not knowing what is next. “Help Me” is the fifth track that begins with a worldy instrumental influence that sheds light on the dynamic range of awareness that Iuliano has within the massive world of music as he lyrically challenges himself to step forward and ask for help when it comes to facing the pain that is tearing his spirit down each and every day. Closing out with the radio edit of “The Hidden Root”, Iuliano welcomingly reminds millenials that they simply don’t have it have it all figured out.
Beyond his time, Iuliano is a cultured human being who has translated his life experiences into the creation of a kaleidoscopic musical world for listeners. If you’re a fan of a variety of fellow musicians such as Yes, Hozier and Iron & Wine, then keep an eye out for the full-length release of ‘Hidden Root’ on Soundcloud.
