Julia Jacklin shares new single 'Pressure To Party'


Julia Jacklin has shared the new video for ‘Pressure To Party’, the brand new single from her forthcoming album Crushing. 

The record, which will be out out next month on Transgressive, is the second full-length album from Jacklin and the follow-up to her critically acclaimed 2016 debut Don’t Let the Kids Win.

“When you come out of a relationship, there’s so much pressure to act a certain way,” explains Jacklin. “First it’s like, ‘Oh, you’ve gotta take some time for yourself’…but then if you take too much time it’s, ‘You’ve gotta get back out there!’ That song is just my three-minute scream, saying I’m going to do what I need to do, when I need to do it.”

On the new video, directed alongside long-time visual collaborator Nick Mckk, she said: “I went back to the house we shot my first music video ‘Pool Party’ in, as it felt like a good visual book end for the last three years. We shot the video in one take. It took a few practice runs but we managed to get it done in about four hours. We all swam in the pool after. It was a really special day.

“I managed to get all of my siblings in the clip, and we hadn’t all been in the same room together for over four years. I also got one of my favourite bands ‘Body Type’ to wear all my old music video outfits and pretend to be my band.”
