Julia Jacklin is back with a new single/music video: “Leadlight”

The lovely Julia Jacklin who calls the neighborhood of Glebe in Sydney, Australia her home, has announced the release of her debut record titled, Don’t Let the Kids Win. The album is due out on October 7th via Polyvinyl. With her first single, “Pool Party” out already, she has released another beautiful track, a lilting love song with an accompanying video directed by Jacklin and shot in her old high school. Jacklin acts like a young teenage girl, shy, in love, too bashful to speak to the man of her dreams but a fire burns behind her eyes that she unleashes in the end. About the video and track Jacklin says:

I filmed this music video in my old High school hall in the Blue Mountains,” says Jacklin.  “A lot of the shots focus on the stage where I performed in the chorus for ‘Grease’ and ‘Fiddler on the Roof’ and the unfortunate time I chose to sing ‘Wonderwall’ to a backing CD for a senior assembly. I went back there recently and saw the hall in a whole new light. When I was at school I never really thought about it, it was just a boring school hall that I was forced to sit in for long assemblies and exams. Now I think it’s actually a really beautiful space.”
