“’Mala Noche’ is a celebration of solitude, it’s a resilient drunken shout into the cosmos screaming, ‘this is what I’m feeling, take it or leave it.”- JULIAN LAMADRID
|“tender and emotional – and perhaps just a bit reckless.” – SUBSTREAM |
“Julian Lamadrid is a masterful young musician on the rise.” – L’OFFICIEL
“The 21-year-old grew up on Elvis, Pink Floyd, Bowie, Iggy Pop, and Lou Reed, inspiring an eclectic mix of his artistry.” – FLAUNT
Today, New York-based artist Julian Lamadrid reveals his new project, Mala Noche, composed and produced by Lamadrid in Brooklyn. Featured on Mala Noche is the lead single, “Moment” along with an accompanying music video directed by Lamadrid. Mala Noche is the first installment showcasing his unique artistry, influenced by New Wave, Bedroom Pop, Hip Hop, 80’s synth and British Rock.
Born and raised in Dubai to Mexican expats, Lamadrid has previously released “Mess”, “Neon”, “Die Young” and “Red Car” – all which feature on Mala Noche. The tracks have garnered tastemaker buzz from Wonderland, CLASH, Flaunt Magazine, VMAN, Billboard and more. 1883 Magazine lauded Julian for “living and breathing art in its many forms.”
With Elvis Presley, Pink Floyd, David Bowie, Iggy Pop and Lou Reed as his greatest inspirations, the 21-year-old has grown up on a steady diet of music, literature and film. At 18, he moved to New York City, citing films as ‘Taxi Driver’ and ‘Midnight Cowboy’ as reasons to enroll in New York University’s film school. Writing and producing along the way, Lamadrid grew frustrated by societal pressure to create data driven and social media-focused art. In turn, he set out to take a risk and record Mala Noche.
Created entirely by Lamadrid, with its visual content self-directed as well, the richness of this project creates an audible pathway towards the future of pop music.
