Julia Bardo Unfolds An Ode To Self-Acceptance On “It’s Okay (To Not Be Okay)”

Having decided to move on from Working Men’s Club earlier this year and continue a voyage of discovery in her newly adopted Manchester, Julia Bardo has flourished with a slew of new material alongside a glorious cover EP, The Raw, featuring her vibrant takes on Fleetwood Mac, Silver Jews and LCD Soundsytem. It’s Okay (To Not Be Okay) finds Bardo in a relatively optimistic mood, despite challenging times, and is described by the singer as “an offering of solace and solidarity in these tumultuous times.” It provides a wise reminder to take a step back and give ourselves a little pat on the back for coping with everything that life is throwing at us from time to time. Comprised of warm, reverberating guitar chords and a smooth-as-silk bassline, and topped of with Bardo’s nostalgic tones, it’s the sonic equivalent of a cup of warm chocolate, drank whilst sitting next an open fire, and serves as a pleasant moment of refuge amidst all the chaos at the moment.
