Brooklyn-based rising singer-songwriter Julius has shared a riveting new single "Sandstorm."

The explosive cut showcases a blissful, Justin-Vernon-meets-Imagine-Dragons sound, with moments of grit and arena-ready production balanced by Julius' genre-bending vocals.

"Sandstorm" marks the up-and-comer's third release following "Ohh Baby" and standout "Falling on Hard Times." Like the the previous tracks, this new one is produced by Benny Cassette.

Of the track, Julius said: "Lyrically I was thinking about how sometimes you feel like you have to put on a facade for people ... you're in this sandstorm of fake people and bullshit and you have to get back to the river of your own soul and truth."
