Review: "Brendan" - She Is Jules

Rising electro-pop artist She Is Jules just released her latest track, “Brendan,” on May 10, 2024. Inspired by true events, the song details when her ex called her after proposing to someone else. Except Jules is moved on from the relationship, and the pair had not talked since 2019. She wrestles with the confusion, anger, and heartbreak of someone that she once loved reaching out on the brink of them entering into a marriage with another person. You don't have to hear from your ex right after they propose to someone else to relate to the authentic lyricism of this new pop track.

The moody pop track begins with Jules' gentle vocals addressing her ex, namely Brendan, who is calling her even though he has moved on with someone else and is getting engaged. With empathy for his new girl, she sings in the bridge, “Thought I had it bad, but she’s got it worse / How could you do that, that to her / It’s absurd / Hope she leaves you sad, get what you deserve / When she don’t come back, hope it hurts." In the chorus, she boldly asks, "Does she get offended / Does she even know you / Didn’t just call me to talk." Following the bridge, Jules includes includes a snippet of a phone ringing. The effect adds to the overall storytelling in the track.

With a sound similar to artists like Julia Michaels and Maisie Peters, Julianna Pollifrone, better known as She Is Jules, is an up-and-coming electro-pop artist. Her first song hit streaming services in 2017, but since then, she has achieved over 120 million streams. She started playing guitar at the age of 8 years old and has been growing as a musical artist ever since. Her music has been featured in a couple shows, and she's collaborated with the Timmy Trumpet and Gabry Ponte. If you enjoyed "Brendan," make sure to check out the rest of Jules' discography.
