£22.99 – Limited Edition Green Vinyl LP & DLC

The second full-length album from Australian singer-songwriter Julia Jacklin, Crushing embodies every possible meaning of its title word. It’s an album formed from sheer intensity of feeling, an in-the-moment narrative of heartbreak and infatuation. And with her storytelling centred on bodies and crossed boundaries and smothering closeness, Crushing reveals how our physical experience of the world shapes and sometimes distorts our inner lives.

The follow-up to her critically acclaimed debut Don’t Let the Kids Win (2016), Crushing finds Jacklin continually acknowledging what’s expected of her, then gracefully rejecting those expectations. As a result, the album invites self-examination and a possible shift in the listener’s way of getting around the world, an effect that has everything to do with Jacklin’s openness about her own experience.

Produced by Burke Reid (Courtney Barnett, Liam Finn) and recorded at The Grove Studios, Crushing sets Jacklin’s understated defiance against a raw yet luminous sonic backdrop. “In all the songs, you can hear every sound from every instrument; you can hear my throat and hear me breathing” she says. “It was really important to me that you can hear everything for the whole record, without any studio tricks getting in the way”.
