Julz Evans is a trans musician and songwriter based in Naarm/Melbourne, originally from Perth.
Social Cues is the first release from his upcoming “Gestation” EP. Ever felt like everything will be ok if you could just get a few days to yourself out of town? Then returned from the trip with the exact same problems? Maybe he was missing social cues due to stress and a poor relationship dynamic, or maybe just due to his autism. This bittersweet folk-pop ditty is the first song in a collection of 5, his voice shortly after starting testosterone/hormone replacement therapy. Each song’s vocals were recorded a few months apart to show the deepening of his voice on T.
The EP (recorded at Love Shack Studios, Footscray) is largely a folk composition, written on acoustic guitar and featuring the usual band instruments plus cello, violins, rich harmonies and an accordion as things start getting darker.
