Julien Chang’s loungey “Butterflies from Monaco” will smooth you out Erica Snyder

Julien Chang, the classically trained indie-pop producer and multi-instrumentalist from Baltimore, makes delightfully dazed indie pop that falls some way between the dense, hazy lounge production of infinite bisous and Fleet Foxes’ delicate indie folk. The young Transgressive signee has only released one song to date — July’s “Of The Past” — and its slick 80s guitars and airy vocals certainly made an impression. Now, he’s releasing “Butterflies From Monaco,” his sophomore single, and it’s another winner — a six-minute corker that begins with light, ambient synth work before opening up into a breezy AM-radio style pop track. The single will be on Chang's newly announced debut album, Jules, out October 11 via Transgressive. Pre-order the album here, watch the video for the song below, and find Chang’s tour dates at the foot of the page.
