‘Unreal’ is the new single from Julia Stone; her second offering for 2020 and follow up to her striking return ‘Break’. Buried beneath the darkness of ‘Unreal’ belies the song’s hidden sweetness. Beginning it’s journey as a synth-gilded tale of friendship, the sample-heavy, richly layered track also speaks to the experience of feeling alienated in a relationship. ‘Unreal’ and ‘Break’ will feature on a greater body of work to come.
