Seven years later, Julia Holter sets off on tour to promote her fifth studio album named ‘Aviary’, out on October 26th. Travelling through Europe first, the American musician arrives in Manchester on the 6th of December to perform her new music, which is deemed to be her most breathtakingly expansive album yet. “I think this album is reflecting that feeling of cacophony and how one responds to it as a person – how one behaves, how one looks for love, for solace”, Holter states.
