"The Australian singer-songwriter has a knack for packing an emotional punch with her deceptively fragile sound... an exciting return for the musician, and positions our eyes on the road to Jacklin's next release." - NPR

"“Head Alone” sounds at first like placid folk-rock, with two strummed guitar chords behind Australian songwriter Julia Jacklin’s reedy voice. But that’s resolve, not complacency; she’s fuming, and the reason soon emerges: “I don’t want to be touched all the time,” she sings. By the end of the song, she’s got a rallying cry: “Say it till he understands/ You can love somebody without using your hands.”" - New York Times

"["Body"] A maudlin song about your shitty boyfriend being arrested on a plane for smoking in the toilets. What’s not to love?" - The FADER

"Focus on the emotions and scenes she conjures with her carefully chosen words and you start to appreciate Crushing for what it is: Nothing less than an awakening." - THERINGER

"Aussie artist Julia Jacklin’s new album Crushing explores all facets of the word. "Head Alone" is a pointed song; with the gripping socio-political lyric “I don’t want to be touched all the time/I raised my body up to be mine." KCRW

Jacklin will be returning to the US this spring for a national tour. All dates are listed below. Click here to order Crushing.
