627 “Cold Caller” by Julia Jacklin
8·9 “Excellent Blues Rock / Soul Rock from Australia”
AA-side of her “Eastwick” single in September, 2017.
– Sydney-born Melbourne-based artist, 8 years in the game. I just love the hooky, moody, blues groove on this one, lyrically inspired by her older sister’s pregnancy: “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.”
