Julianna Joy’s “Prescriptions” is Profound

Julianna Joy, up-and-coming singer-songwriter, has created a masterpiece in her new single, “Prescriptions.” The single emits an ethereal feel with vulnerable, relatable lyricism. Julianna Joy’s ode to mental health medications is both profound and hopeful.

Opening Up About Mental Health

The young artist spoke to Zane Lowe on his Apple Podcast about the meaning of “Prescriptions.” Joy recounts her own experiences with being prescribed mental health medications, saying “This song is about the struggle with acceptance of being on meds, and how the first few months of adjusting and figuring out what is best for your body affects your relationships. It’s hard knowing what is right for your body, especially when there are so many different options… I am just lucky enough to have found a med that worked for me and that I had access in the first place.”

More to Come

“Prescriptions” is the third track off her forthcoming EP, “Garden of Eden,” which releases February 11th. You can preorder the EP here. Julianna Joy has always been open with her audience about her feelings. Like December’s single, “Teenage Boys,” “Prescriptions” is a prophetic, vulnerable look into her life. With lyrics like “taking my prescriptions one by one / just to get close to you,” it’s hard not to relate.

Prescriptions is an Impressive Listen

Julianna Joy’s airy vocals combine beautifully with poignant lyrics and rumbling backings. Fans are, of course, impressed just as much with her singing as they are her songwriting. She cowrote and co-produced her upcoming EP with Teddy Geiger, who has written with 5 Seconds of Summer and Shawn Mendes. Geiger is most known for her Grammy nomination as cowriter of Shawn Mendes’ “In My Blood”.

Poised for Success

Subsequently, “Garden of Eden” is poised for success with both Joy and Geiger’s creativity. Her raw talent and profound honesty makes for an intriguing listen.
