It’s hard to believe this song by Julia Jacklin includes the word, “lead,” in it. Because there’s nothing lead-like about her voice nor her songwriting. Not that it’s all light and flaky, but the Australian singer-songwriter strikes a delicate balance between light and darkness, heaviness and hope. Better yet, just listen for yourself.
Plus, another bonus: Julia Jacklin is back in Portland at the Doug Fir Lounge on Sunday, Nov. 19. Tickets are a steal at $12-$14 so it’d be foolish not to treat yourself to this!
