Julia Bardo Announces Anticipated Debut LP ‘Bauhaus L’Appartamento’

Brescia, Italy-born and Manchester, UK-based artist Julia Bardo today announced her anticipated debut album Bauhaus, L’Appartamento will be released on September 10th, 2021 (Wichita Recordings), and shared the vibrant, searching new single “Do This To Me.” Unlocking a space of her own after laying foundations in a foreign land, the album is an intimate bell jar containing the twists and turns of her journey so far, tracing her unfolding emotions and thought processes along the way. Bauhaus, L’Appartamento ultimately finds Bardo in absolute confidence, both musically and personally, as she finally embraces her cultural identity in her new home.

The Georgie Brown-directed video for “Do This To Me” sees Bardo glamorizing a mundane routine and losing herself in another life. “‘Do This To Me’ is a very personal song about feeling abandoned, growing up, and family,” she explains. Her debut LP follows the release of two 2020 EPs, Phase and The Raw, in which her striking, seductive style as a solo artist began to take shape. The EPs earned Bardo great press from The FADER, Stereogum, Harper’s Bazaar, Brooklyn Vegan, Bandcamp Daily, Talkhouse, NPR Music (New Music Friday playlist), Gorilla vs. Bear, and Atwood Magazine, among others. Bardo also today announced a Fall 2021 headline tour in the UK, alongside a series of festival appearances.
