Julien the Child is an American musical project from Tampa, Florida, formed by Oliver Eldridge. Inspired by the sonic simplicity of Joy Division, the lyrical depth of Bright Eyes and the pop experimentation of Radical Face and tUNe-yArDs, Eldridge showcases his own brand of indie electronic pop music.
A songwriter since age ten, 24-year-old Oliver Eldridge created Julien the Child in 2016, after a decade of independently releasing music under various monikers. The project began with You Have Not Heard Silence, a collection of older songs that were re-recorded by Eldridge in the back room of his grandmother’s trailer and released as the project’s debut full length album on August 1st, 2016.
“Self-Aware” was recently released as the first single for Julien the Child’s upcoming sophomore album titled Memory Flu.
