Watch Julia Jacklin’s mesmerising live performance on a rooftop in Brooklyn
Julia Jacklin has shared a mesmerising live performance of her latest single ‘Eastwick’, the first single from her upcoming 7″ release, out September 15th 2017 via Transgressive Records.
The live performance was captured by Sideshow Alley – an independent, music-focused filmmaking collective based in Julia’s home country, Australia. The original series records artists performing one song in one take with no fixed agenda and no rehearsal – by imposing location, time and technological restrictions this informal approach brings out a unique and honest take on each artists’ music.
“I’m finally feeling my age,” says Jacklin. “When you feel like you’ve done something worthwhile, you relax a bit. That’s a nice feeling I have now, that I definitely didn’t have when I made the record.”
“I thought it was going to be a heartbreak record,” says Jacklin. “But in hindsight I see it was about hitting 24 and being like wait, this isn’t what I imagined this part of my life to look like. I thought I was going to be a lot more impressive. This record came from the mad rush to make something before any more time passed me by.”
