City Pages Interview on Aporia

Thanks to Erica Rivera for featuring an interview with Julia Floberg about “Aporia” in City Pages. Read the full article here.

When Julia Floberg was five, she asked her mother, an amateur pianist, if she could play an instrument like her four older siblings. Her mother suggested the cello. Twenty-two years later, Floberg is still attached to that instrument at the hip and has crafted enough original songs and spoken word recordings to fill her 18-track debut LP, Aporia. Written during her mid-20s, when the Minneapolis native lived in Boston, the album captures the uncertainty Floberg felt about entering adulthood with vocal laments and elegiac instrumentation. Throughout the album-length narrative, she questions faith, love, and friendship while simultaneously searching for meaning.
