Posted 02/22/2019
Happiest of release days to the immense talent that is Julia Jacklin! We are beyond proud to share Crushing with the world – find it now in record store bins worldwide and on all your favorite digital platforms.

Produced by Burke Reid and recorded at The Grove Studios (a bushland hideaway built by INXSGarry Gary Beers), Jacklin’s second full-length album embodies every possible meaning of its title word. Crushing sets her understated defiance against a raw yet luminous sonic backdrop.

Critics agree, this album rips –

"With these elegantly devastating songs, she carves out a space, and a class, all of her own.” - Mojo

"Crushing by name and crushing by nature, the singer-songwriter's second album is the sonic equivalent of cracking a smirk and jabbing your knee at an offending man-spreader.” - NME

"Crushing is filled with moments of brutal honesty, confusion, relief, resiliency and regret.” - NPR

"Julia Jacklin delivers a masterclass in slow-burning story-telling. A break-up album may be nothing new, but in her hands, ‘Crushing’ becomes something fresh and captivating, simple songs of a complicated human life that are at times heart-rending, yet ultimately triumphant in spirit.” - Dork

"Grunge-rinsed, feminist-flipped, upcycled Fifties guitar an’ all: Crushing is a triumph.” - The Independent

"The subject matter is sometimes uncomfortable in its realism, but her delivery - straightforward and in tranquil, almost mumbled voice - makes it clear that she will not be shamed into hiding her truth." - PopMatters
