Julia Holter holds a very special place in the hearts of everyone here at The 405. Hell, if you've heard any of the albums she's put out in recent years (Tragedy, Ekstasis and Loud City Songs), she probably holds a substantial portion of yours too. Put simply, she's the best.

During Holter's show at St. John's Hackney last week our love grew stronger, and 405 Photographer Phil Smithies was there to capture every moment of it (Holter that is... not weird photos of us beaming from ear to ear).

You can catch her live at the Barbican in London on November 29th. She'll be performing with the Berlin-based musicians collective, 's t a r g a z e', so it should be pretty incredible (tickets can be found here). To explore more of Holter's world, head here.
