CD Review – I Don’t Really Care EP, Julia McDougall


Previously, under the name of Julia And Her Piano, Julia McDougall has dropped the moniker for her latest release, the I Don't Really Care EP, and it's very fitting that piano no longer shares equal billing with Julia; the piano is only prominent on the final track "Someday". Instead, Julia's sweeping string arrangements and clear, delicate voice singing about finding purpose and direction in life take centre stage. Particularly beautiful is the title track with its simple mantra that encapsulates what many young adults find themselves feeling.

While the 12 minutes of music in this EP stand wonderfully in their collection together or mixed in a playlist with your favourite indie songstresses, I hope this EP is more of a musical promise from Julia of a career that will continue to showcase her incredible, elegant arrangements and impassioned vocals.
