Mistletone proudly presents North American luminaries Mary Lattimore and Julianna Barwick, coming together for a never-before-seen collaboration during their forthcoming double headline Australian tour.

Over the past decade, each artist has created her own inimitable universe of light; Julianna Barwick building evocative choral symphonies, layering her own voice on top of itself to stunning effect; and Mary Lattimore conjuring expressive beauty on her forty-seven-string Lyon & Healy harp and synth effects. Both artists have released a series of fascinating records, with Mary Lattimore most recently collaborating with Superchunk’s Mac McCaughan and Heron Oblivion’s Meg Baird on two duet albums and topping year-end charts with her sublime solo album, Hundreds of Days, which New Yorker music critic, Amanda Petrusich described as “music to self-actualize by”. 

Julianna Barwick’s immersive debut The Magic Place (Mistletone, 2011) was named as one of the 50 Best Ambient Albums of All Time by Pitchfork, who noted: “The Magic Place conjures the reverie of childhood wonder, but rather than just merely recall it nostalgically, Barwick’s voice has the power to render such awe wholly in the present moment.” One of the most powerfully emotive voices in contemporary music, Julianna Barwick has collaborated with Sigur Rós producer Alex Somers in Iceland, Radiohead, Yoko Ono, Philip Glass, Steve Hauschildt and the Flaming Lips. 

A collaboration borne out of mutual admiration of each other’s music, and a fateful merging of two visionary musical worlds.
