Julia Jacklin

Last year Australian country singer Julia Jacklin released her debut LP, Don’t Let the Kids Win. Jacklin’s warbling voice and guitar tones sound a whole lot like Angel Olsen, who’s one of her major inspirations, but with glossier pop melodies and simple lyrics that make her music easily relatable. She spends songs thinking about getting old, marveling at the passage of time, and fantasizing about having Zach Braff as her dad (can’t relate to that one). Sometimes Jacklin seems to hang out in worn country tropes like they’re a comfortable old pair of overalls—she calls people “darlin’” a lot—but Don’t Let the Kids Win is a pretty and playfully ruminative introduction.
