Julia Jacklin doesn’t need to shout from the rooftops. The Melbourne-based singer and songwriter has a slow burn talent with a timeless quality, and it’s captured the attention of music fans and critics around the globe.

With Pre Pleasure, her third album, Jacklin should make more friends. Completed in Montreal with co-producer Marcus Paquin, off the back of a gruelling world tour, Pre Pleasure is warm and contemplative, its alt-country leanings at times meditative.
