Australian singer-songwriter Julia Jacklin released Crushing, her second studio album, earlier this year via Polyvinyl. She’s on a US tour now with a stop at the Black Cat on Sunday, Nov. 10.
Recently, Julia released the long awaited video for album favorite “Don’t Know How to Keep Loving You.” The video was filmed in the upstairs function room of a Turkish restaurant called Alaska on Melbourne’s Sydney road.
Julia said about not seeing the singer’s face in the video, “I find it sad how much we can never really know how someone’s feeling no matter how much we think we know them. We’re all holding back in someway. Our inner lives can be so weird and loud that we all have to hold back a bit in order to exist and function in the world. He’s not really a part of what’s she’s processing in that costume shop red dress, he can’t really be let into those thoughts, she’s gotta figure it out herself.”
Watch the official music video for “Don’t Know How to Keep Loving You” by Julia Jacklin on YouTube:
“Crushing rejects complex production in favor of clarity: Jacklin’s subtly powerful voice sits way up front in the mix, largely untouched by reverb or effects, which lends it an appropriate sense of vulnerability. Although her guitar stands out… the instrumentation largely serves as a platter on which her lyrics sit,” NPR said.
