Julia Jacklin - PRE PLEASURE

Hers is a world where solace and solidarity are steeped into every brick.

Julia Jacklin - PRE PLEASURE
‘PRE PLEASURE’ finds Julia Jacklin doing what she does best: bottling uncomfortably intimate moments and transforming them into the sort of tender tracks that somehow offer comfort. And on this third album, those moments are amplified. From shimmering strings to sparkling choruses (‘Ignore Tenderness’), we’re treated to a yet more intimate take on Julia’s signature sound. It’s a record which spirals with every panicked thought, soars with every second of joy felt and finds bursts of peace at every unexpected moment. ‘Less Of A Stranger’ is a sonic heart crack, with its feather light vocals and stripped-back strumming. ‘Moviegoer’, meanwhile, soundtracks its examination of a person’s behaviour with a deceivingly content hum and dreamlike haze. From start to finish, Julia has created a world entirely of her own - one which revels in representing her with unflinching honesty using a delicately-woven soundscape. Hers is a world where solace and solidarity are steeped into every brick.
