On Crushing, Julia Jacklin recounts the end of a relationship. The album is heartbreaking, yet addicting. The Australian artist writes emotionally potent songs that nestle their way into your heart and make you want to play them over and over again. On Monday, November 11th, Jacklin will bring Crushing to The Foundry. As sad as it may be, you won’t want to miss this show.
Released in February of this year, Crushing is Jacklin’s follow up to her 2016 debut, Don’t Let the Kids Win. The record is stripped back, straightforward, and painfully beautiful. Jacklin’s voice and storytelling take centerstage. Across its ten tracks, Jacklin explores her various experiences and feelings during a fraught breakup. “Pressure to Party” discusses her post-breakup attempts to revert to normalcy while “You Were Right” is about learning what she actually enjoys in life. The album’s opener and first single, “Body”, highlights how Jacklin came to recognize that her partner’s habits were unhealthy for her to be a part of. The album pulls on your heartstrings and floods you with feelings, and you’ll end up thanking it for doing so.
For her fall tour, Jacklin will be joined by Christian Lee Hutson. For the last few months, Hutson has been on the road with Better Oblivion Community Center. In March he shared “Northsiders“, the first taste of his Phoebe Bridgers-produced album.
Tickets for Julia Jacklin and Christian Lee Hutson’s show at The Foundry go on sale this Friday, August 16th, at 10 am. Find more information on the XPN Concert Calendar.
