Julia Jacklin shares golden hour music video for latest single "Head Alone"
Posted 11/28/2018
"“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

Sometimes it's less about what you are running away from and more about what you are running towards. Julia Jacklin gets literal in her new music video for "Head Alone," directed by long-time visual collaborator Nick Mckk

"We shot this clip in the streets of Melbourne last minute before tour. We waited until golden hour, Nick sat in the back of a car while my friend Tom drove and we just tried it as many times as we could before we lost light. This was the last take; I was exhausted from chasing the car but I think it worked because I gave up being graceful. I couldn't think of what to do for this song because the words mean a lot to me and I didn't want to distract people from the song. I just wanted to act the way the song makes me feel. Empowered and hopeful. Felt sick from the exhaust fumes but I think we captured the feeling.”

The single is taken from JJ's forthcoming album, Crushing, out February 22nd. Pre-order your copy now and sprint towards all that's still good in the world.
