    Julia Jacklin made a killer first impression with her debut album, 2016’s Don’t Let the Kids Win, a collection of clever yet open-hearted folk-rock strummers. She’s following up that record next month with a new one called Crushing, which was led by the singles “Body” and “Head Alone”. Today Jacklin serves up another taste off her forthcoming sophomore LP, the propulsive “Pressure to Party”, which comes alongside a charmingly homespun visual.

    Co-directed by Jacklin and her running collaborator Nick Mckk, the video is shot in the same house used for the songwriter’s breakout single “Pool Party”. The one-take clip features all of Jacklin’s siblings together in the same room for the first time in four years, as well as cameos from Body Type, one of her favorite bands. Altogether they capture an inviting familial energy that marks Jacklin’s growth since her previous visit to that house.

    Watch below.

    Speaking about the song itself, Jacklin said, “When you come out of a relationship, there’s so much pressure to act a certain way. First it’s like, ‘Oh, you’ve gotta take some time for yourself…’ but then if you take too much time it’s, ‘You’ve gotta get back out there!’ That song is just my three-minute scream, saying I’m going to do what I need to do, when I need to do it.”

    Crushing was produced by Burke Reid and recorded at The Grove Studios in Jacklin’s native Australia, and is out on February 22nd via Polyvinyl. Find the album artwork and tracklist ahead.
