Guests: Jaala (solo) + Rough River
THIS SHOW IS STRICTLY 18+
After what can only be described as a whirlwind period following the release of her critically acclaimed debut Don’t Let The Kids Win, Frontier Touring and Liberation Music are pleased to announce Julia Jacklin will return to home soil this May to play her biggest Australian headline to date at Melbourne’s Corner Hotel on Wednesday 24 May.
The news comes just days after revealing the video clip for her album track ‘Coming Of Age’. A resolve to accept the passing of time, the snappy fuzz of ‘Coming of Age’ perfectly encapsulates the mood of Julia’s debut. All of the videos from the album to date - ‘Pool Party’, ‘Leadlight’ and title track ‘Don’t Let The Kids Win’ – have been creatively directed by Julia herself with ‘Coming of Age’ being no exception to the recipe.
To say the past year has been a busy one for the Sydney-based artist would be an understatement. In October last year Julia released her stunning debut LP to a rapturous response. Julia toured the UK and US with headline shows and as main support for Whitney and Marlon Williams and played The Great Escape in Brighton and SXSW. Back home, in addition to playing to sell-out crowds on her national album tour and joining the hugely successful Laneway Festival circuit, Julia also managed to bring the country to tears with her stirring rendition of The Strokes’ ‘Someday’ on triple j’s Like A Version.
