“I Thought Of You”
Julie Doiron got her start at 18 with the band Eric’s Trip. The first Canadian band to be signed to Sub Pop, Eric’s Trip put out modern
classics like Forever Again and Purple Blue and though they called it a day in ’96, they reformed for shows as recently as 2007. As for the New Brunswick-born Doiron, she embarked on a solo career that to date has found her releasing close to fifteen albums, including Loneliest In The Morning, Woke Myself Up and her brand new one, I Thought Of You. We’ll get to that in a second—but before we do, here’s a partial list of her accomplishments. She won a Juno award with her collaborative album with the Wooden Stars, her 2007 effort Woke Myself Up was shortlisted for the Polaris Music Prize, she’s put out records in Spanish and French, she’s appeared on albums by The Tragically Hip, she was in the band Shotgun and Jaybird, June 7th was declared by the Mayor of Bruno, Saskatchewan to be Julie Doiron Day, and her track “The Life of Dreams” was used in an iPhone commercial. I Thought Of You is her first full length solo album in nine years, and it’s a stone cold killer. A riveting batch of wobbly indie rock that’s a perfect blend of fire, vulnerability and grace, I Thought Of You is one of the most moving listening experiences of 2021. In this intimate chat, Julie and Alex talk about relationships, the complexities of love and the difficulty of taking compliments.
