Why do we like this?

While Lana del Rey was smoking her blunt for poetic inspiration, Joe Jonas was riding his one-hit-wonder wave as far as it took him, and Miley Cyrus was staring off into the sunset with a lover that would end up being as fleeting as the scenery, Julietta was at the beach for a different reason. Not for a party that consisted of Mary Jane, cake, and long walks on the pier, but for a seven-months-into-quarantine party of one: sprawled out funk bass lines, melting Daft Punk vocoder, and a laid-back four-on-the-floor drum machine, blurring into one like the days that pass by.

When “Ghosted for the Beach” isn’t disco though — namely, a midpoint between the beneath-the-surface sensuality of Robyn’s "Honey" and the neon flair of Carly Rae Jepsen’s "Dedicated" — it’s “slowed + reverb” solitude: a wash of synths, ebbing and flowing between foreground and background, and the dissipation of vocals in the wind.

“All your life, you have always waited for it/ All your life, you can’t find a reason for it,” she croons. No gimmick needed; Julietta can sell her oceanside fantasy all by herself.
