Julianna Barwick will release Nepenthe, her first album for Dead Oceans, in August, and she's just dropped another teaser in the form of "One Half." It's a gorgeous, delirious track, all heady loops and layers that summon images of summer sunsets and driving at dusk. It's worth noting that, like the rest of Nepenthe, "One Half" features Barwick's first outside help, in the form of the string quartet Amiina, responsible for those heartstring-tugging violin sounds, and a choir of teenage girls, who bolster Barwick's lovely vocals. Check it out - Nepenthe is out August 20.
