Julia Jacklin’s Eastwick/Cold Caller 7” will be released tomorrow, September 15th via Polyvinyl Recording Co. Following the release for the video for “Eastwick,” described by The Line of Best Fit as “instantly captivating,” Jacklin now shares “Cold Caller,” a beautiful ode to her sister, Emma.
Julia Jacklin on song and more:
“I started writing this song when my older sister told me she was pregnant. I know people get pregnant all the time but this was different, this was my sister. The one who explained tampons to me, told me what kissing felt like, convinced mum to let me shave my legs, sung ‘Boys of Summer’ a capella at the school talent quest.
“I went to New Zealand to record this 7 inch and on the first day she went into labor, I was checking my phone every 10 minutes but managed to write the second part of the song. That night I had all these crazy nightmares, where she kept disappearing into the dark and every time I caught up to her she’d slip out of my hands again. Woke up in an absolute state to the news that she had given birth to a healthy baby boy. I went into the studio and recorded this song. So this is for her, my wonderful sister Emma.”
Jacklin’s debut Don’t Let The Kids Win, featured the singles “Pool Party,” “Leadlight” and title track “Don’t Let The Kids Win,” touring non-stop since its release. Jacklin will see the rest of 2017 continuing to circumnavigate the globe, on her final tour of the year, with shows across the UK, US and Canada before returning to Australia for Falls Festival.
