Julia Jacklin is certainly one of the the most praised Australian artists these recent days. Pool Party, broadcasted on Triple J all day long, comes along with other great indie albums by artists such as First Aid Kit from Sweden and Emily Jane White from the USA. The recipe? Delicious folk music.
“You are the land and I am the dove”
Cool guitar riff, muffled drum sounds, and the voice of blond goddess Julia Jacklin harmonizing perfectly with the instruments are enough to make us fall in love with Pool Party. The backing vocals on the chorus also contribute to underline valuable nuances in the tune.

There is an eternal truth linked with simple folk music that only such kind of tunes can outline. When things get excited at 3’13, with great guitar arpeggios and more intense drums, we get definitely addicted. We know we are going to press play again. And then we – of course – do so.
Julia Jacklin’s 1st album Don’t Let The Kids Win was released on October 7th. Listen to it on Deezer.
