Eastwick has been out for a little while now, and orders of the 7" should now be with you! The other side of that 7" features a song called Cold Caller, which was released last week. You can take a listen to both via our New Releases playlist on either Spotify or Apple Music.
"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' acapella at the school talent quest.
I went to New Zealand to record this 7 inch and on the first day she went into labour, I was checking my phone every 10 mins 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."
These two songs, and the 7", come just at the end of a summer festival run of captivating sets at Field Day, Primavera, Latitude, Green Man, End Of The Road and many others. It's not quite over for 2017 though, as Julia will be back out on tour around the world from November. Find your nearest date in the list below, and tickets at juliajacklin.com.
