Watch the one-take music video for Julia Jacklin's latest "Pressure To Party"
Posted 01/24/2019
Don't let the man get you down, let Julia pick you up and take you dancing –

Following critically lauded tracks “Body” and “Head Alone,” today Julia Jacklin shares the video for "Pressure To Party," the brand new single from her forthcoming album, Crushing, out next month. On the full-tilt, harmony-spiked track, Jacklin pushes towards emotional freedom –

“When you come out of a relationship, there’s so much pressure to act a certain way,” explains Jacklin. “First it’s like, ‘Oh, you’ve gotta take some time for yourself’…but then if you take too much time it’s, ‘You’ve gotta get back out there!’ That song is just my three-minute scream, saying I’m going to do what I need to do, when I need to do it.”

The music video, co-directed by Julia and her long-time visual collaborator Nick Mckk, features quite a bit of Jacklin-history –

“I went back to the house we shot my first music video 'Pool Party’ in, as it felt like a good visual book end for the last 3 years. We shot the video in one take. It took a few practice runs but we managed to get it done in about 4 hours. We all swam in the pool after. It was a really special day. I managed to get all of my siblings in the clip, and we hadn’t all been in the same room together for over 4 years. I also got one of my favourite bands ‘Body Type’ to wear all my old music video outfits and pretend to be my band.”

The second full-length album from Julia Jacklin embodies every possible meaning of its title word. It’s a record formed from sheer intensity of feeling, an in-the-moment narrative of heartbreak and infatuation. Very few limited edition first pressings on 180-Gram Orange (with deluxe gatefold jacket and postcard signed by Julia!) remain.
