Julian has also launched the «Rebel Universe», a virtual world inspired by the new album.
«Rebels of The Neon God» serves as the follow up to Julian’s 2019 debut, «Mala Noche». Featuring past singles like «Teenager», «One More Trip», «Cigarette» and «Patience», the new 12-track album is a masterfully executed record unbound by genre or expectations. «The album is centred around the dichotomy between frustration and dance, vacancy and ecstasy; enlightenment through pain», says Julian. «I have glimpsed into the eyes of The Neon God, pierced through the void and come out the other end, desperate for connection, hungry for the eternal».
«The Neon God» serves as the closing track on the album. It’s a stunningly cinematic track, featuring hypnotic vocal chops, ethereal synth-laden soundscapes and poignant lyricism. In Julian’s own words, «The Neon God», represents the «infinitely tender sensation of living…it’s the pinnacle of my musical ambition, an opus of ecstasy and hope».
