“I really hate showing my legs even when the Sydney summer begs me,” Julia Jacklin sings on the opening verse to her brand new single, and it’s a line that immediately sets the tone for a powerful and beautiful confessional-of-sorts, which sits as her brand new single and her first new material since last year’s ‘Don’t Let The Kids Win‘, the force of which is still lingering and stirring.
Released alongside news of another run of UK live dates this November (check-out the full list below) “Eastwick” is a formidable stand-alone track, one which rises up from those aforementioned personal sentiments in to something altogether more substantial, the whole thing falling in on itself in a storm of unbalanced and unruly guitars and drums that hit like a mighty old gust of wind, just when you need it the most.
