Pre Pleasure by Julia Jacklin

The Feature Album this week on 2SER is the third from singer/songwriter Julia Jacklin.

Recorded in Montreal with co-producer Marcus Paquin, Pre Pleasure is at turns cinematic and haunting. Orchestral overtones gel with songwriting that hinges on Jacklin’s distinct style of restrained melancholic vocals. Pre Pleasure is refined, but with feeling all the way, ranging from introspective ballads to sumptuous indie-rock songs, that ebbs and swells throughout, and is a fine addition to the catalogue of a Sydney artist who is going from strength to strength.

Highly recommended and out now on vinyl and digital via Liberation Records. 2SER Subscribers can win a vinyl copy in the usual way.
