Julia Jacklin continues to fly the flag for Australia

As we have said the Aussie singer/songwriter category is pretty well fulfilled. Not only do the Aussies have Courtney Barnett, Fraser A. Gorman and Alex Lahey they also have Julia Jacklin.

Jacklin made a name for herself with some wonderful performances at SXSW and since penning a deal with the ever brilliant Transgressive Records she has now given us details of her first LP Don’t Let the Kids Win out on October 7th.

Alongside this announcement she has also given us a taste of what to expect from the new album with single ‘Leadlight’. The track gently rocks along the Laura Marling road feel gentle and heartfelt but with enough heat to make your blood rise. The track is presented with a video shot in her old high school.

Jacklin also has some UK dates lined up so make sure you get out to at least one of them. Just think; you’ll be able to tell your children “ I saw her when…” because Jacklin is a star in the making.
