Listen: Joe Turner - Borders ft. Julia Church

The South London artist enlists the soulful vocals of Julia Church, as he unveils this melodic new single.

From South London comes producer, multi-instrumentalist and DJ; Joe Turner, and his latest melodic electronic single Borders featuring the soulful vocals of Julia Church. Appearing on stages such as Glasonbury and Amazon Music’s Summer Sessions, in addition to having over 14 million streams on Spotify alone, and his previous single Desire taking out BBC 1’s Future Artists ‘Track Of The Week’, it’s been a busy journey so far for this artist, as he continues to craft clever melodies and bring them to stages. 

Pushing along with a steady beat, sparkling synths and rhythmic bass, Borders is “a nostalgic look at a past love that never truly concluded and still feels magnetic…I liked how the idea of wanting to know somebody’s borders feels all-encompassing and vast” shares Julia Church. Stylistically pulled back in the verses, building to more harsh soundscapes in the chorus, Joe shares this dynamic is “to help portray the emotions of Julia’s vocals. The verses are calm and almost romantic, whilst the choruses are much more frantic and explosive.” Produced to be silky smooth and dance floor ready, Borders has a cathartic magnetism that Joe Turner describes as “a love for something or someone that hasn’t quite faded”. 

Out now, be sure to get across Joe Turner and give Borders ft. Julia Church a listen below.
