Julia Jacklin - Be Careful With Yourself (Official Visualiser)







Just ahead of her highly-awaited new album PRE PLEASURE, Australia’s Julia Jacklin shares a latest taste of the forthcoming album with new single, “Be Careful With Yourself.” PRE PLEASURE arrives this Friday, August 26 on Polyvinyl Record Co.


Driving guitars usher you into the hazy, dreamlike soundscape of “Be Careful With Yourself,” while Jacklin’s effortless vocals cut through rhythmic drums and airy harmonies. Equal parts honest and vulnerable, “Be Careful With Yourself” is a cathartic release and a love song for the ages.

“Be Careful With Yourself” follows fan favorites, "Love, Try Not To Let Go,” “I Was Neon,” and “Lydia Wears A Cross,” which received a wave of love on release globally, reviewed by the likes of Pitchfork, The New York Times, Stereogum, NME and NPR Music, with media and fans all welcoming the return of Jacklin and news of her third album release. “I Was Neon” also received serious radio acclaim, with the track being added to full rotation on triple j and international support from BBC Radio 6, BBC Radio 1, SiriusXMU, KEXP and KCRW. 


Since releasing her debut album Don’t Let the Kids Win in 2016, the Melbourne-via-Blue Mountains singer-songwriter has carved out a fearsome reputation as a direct lyricist, willing to excavate the parameters of intimacy and agency in songs both stark and raw, loose, and playful. If her folky debut announced those intentions, and the startling 2019 follow-up Crushing drew in listeners uncomfortably close, PRE PLEASURE is the sound of Jacklin gently loosening her grip.

The new album, Jacklin’s third, is a masterclass in songwriting and cements her status as one of the most important songwriters of our time. PRE PLEASURE was conceived upon returning home from a mammoth Crushing world tour, and finished in a frantic few months of recording in Montreal with co-producer Marcus Paquin (The Weather Station, The National). The 10-track offering sees Jacklin once again putting intensely personal thoughts and feelings to paper whilst expanding on her signature sound; and, at the same time, attempting to inject some joy back into the process.


“Once music becomes your job, you can lose the purity of music fandom. I spent the last two years trying to reconnect with that. I didn’t play much, I just listened. Especially to a lot of big pop music like Celine Dion, Robyn and Luther Vandross – music that wasn’t so heavy, big feelings, big production. You lose sight of what putting on a big, beautiful song can do.”

PRE PLEASURE reflects this source inspiration and showcase Jacklin’s willingness to explore new terrain as both a producer and songwriter, once again presenting her most authentic and genuine self and translating it into deeply personal, timeless songs. 


Jacklin is due to tour the US, UK and Europe from August this year. The tour will span several months and see her perform at her biggest venues to date, including iconic rooms like the 3000-capacity Roundhouse in London, and 1800-capacity Brooklyn Steel in New York.

“‘I Was Neon’ has the feeling of an unrestricted exhale…Jacklin revels in both appreciation and apprehension of the most vibrant version of herself.  NPR

“Julia Jacklin’s music is a gradual accumulation of small, sharp lyrical details, and “Lydia Wears a Cross” is full of them. The arrangement is sparse – drum machine, echoing stabs of piano – to spotlight Jacklin’s storytelling.” THE NEW YORK TIMES

“Lydia Wears A Cross” is a slow-building number. It starts with Jacklin singing over a rickety drum-machine, but by the time it’s over, we get strings and synths and drums coming in from every angle. – STEREOGUM

“Rather than disavowing her much more eager young self with “Lydia Wears a Cross,” Jacklin takes a loving approach, clarifying her primary-school perspective with the wisdom of growing up.” – PITCHFORK

“Lydia Wears A Cross” is a simmering slow-build of a track that crescendos to a swirling vortex of muted tones, a reckoning with childhood memories that’s patient and painstakingly crafted.  PAPER

“Lydia Wears a Cross” could have been a daunting lead single, but Jacklin steps with an impressive lightness across a rolling indie-pop arrangement. – BILLBOARD

“Here [‘I Was Neon’] she puts the pedal to the floor with a few chugging power chords and a hypnotic refrain…The simple, repetitive structure makes this song the perfect festival set closer.” – THE GUARDIAN

"Be Careful With Yourself" is a catchy song with powerful lyric's and chalk filled with gritty guitar chords  - Music Film Fashion Blog

Alvvays - Easy On Your Own? [Official Audio]






Photo Credit: Eleanor Petry | download high-res here

Alvvays returned in a blaze of musical glory last month, delighting fans around the world and reminding everyone why they are one of the most exciting bands of right now. Blue Rev which will be released via Polyvinyl on October 7th. 

Now the band are giving another taste of their exciting new album with another song “Easy On Your Own?”

At least the five-year wait was worthwhile: Blue Rev doesn’t simply reassert what’s always been great about Alvvays but instead reimagines it. There are 14 songs on Blue Rev, making it not only the longest Alvvays album but also the most harmonically rich and lyrically provocative.

Alvvays will be touring North America this fall to celebrate Blue Rev giving fans a much needed cathodic release. All dates are listed below. 

First single “Pharmacist” is a masterclass in indie rock…


"...a distinct emotional undertow, like a stirring dream that ends a little too soon" - The New York Times 

“Pharmacist” is overblown in all the right ways, with all the meticulously layered noise growing into a thicket around Rankin’s tender nostalgia." - Pitchfork 

"First single and album opener “Pharmacist” might as well be the Big Bang, exploding outward to form the beginnings of a new era of Alvvays." - Stereogum 

"The always-incredible Alvvays have returned after five long years with “Pharmacist" — a gloriously fuzzed-out blast of energy that spells good things for the band’s third album, Blue Rev. Drawing from the high-energy, “Lollipop”/”Hey”/”Saved By A Waif” side of the band’s catalog, it’s a very welcome, and pleasingly unexpected, comeback." - Paper 

"complete with a frenetic and exciting guitar solo to cap off what can only be described as a fantastic set-up for this long-awaited album cycle" - Uproxx 

"From the sound of its jangly lead single, “Pharmacist,” it’s already looking to be a brilliant new page for the band" - Nylon

More on Blue Rev… 

Alvvays never intended to take five years to finish their third album, the nervy joyride that is the compulsively lovable Blue Rev. In fact, the band began writing and cutting its first bits soon after  releasing 2017’s Antisocialites, that stunning sophomore record that confirmed the Toronto quintet’s status atop a new generation of winning and whip-smart indie rock.

Global lockdowns notwithstanding, circumstances both ordinary and entirely unpredictable stunted those sessions. Alvvays toured more than expected, a surefire interruption for a band that doesn’t write on the road. A watchful thief then broke into singer Molly Rankin’s apartment and swiped a recorder full of demos, one day before a basement flood nearly ruined all the band’s gear. They subsequently lost a rhythm section and, due to border closures, couldn’t rehearse for months with their masterful new one, drummer Sheridan Riley and bassist Abbey Blackwell.

The songs of Blue Rev thrive on immediacy and intricacy, so good on first listen that the subsequent spins where you hear all the details are an inevitability. This perfectly dovetailed sound stems from an unorthodox—and, for Alvvays, wholly surprising—recording process, unlike anything they’ve ever done. Alvvays are fans of fastidious demos, making maps of new tunes so complete they might as well have topographical contour lines.

But in October 2021, when they arrived at a Los Angeles studio with fellow Canadian Shawn Everett, he urged them to forget the careful planning they’d done and just play the stuff, straight to tape. On the second day, they ripped through Blue Rev front-to-back twice, pausing only 15 seconds between songs and only 30 minutes between full album takes. And then, as Everett has done on recent albums by The War on Drugs and Kacey Musgraves, he spent an obsessive amount of time alongside Alvvays filling in the cracks, roughing up the surfaces, and mixing the


Every element of Alvvays leveled up in the long interim between albums: Riley is a classic dynamo of a drummer, with the power of a rock deity and the finesse of a jazz pedigree. Their roommate, in-demand bassist Blackwell, finds the center of a song and entrenches it. Keyboardist Kerri MacLellan joined Rankin and guitarist Alec O’Hanley to write more this time, reinforcing the band’s collective quest to break patterns heard on their first two albums. 

Alvvays’ self-titled debut, released when much of the band was still in its early 20s, offered speculation about a distant future—marriage, professionalism, interplanetary citizenship. Antisocialites wrestled with the woes of the now, especially the anxieties of inching toward adulthood. Named for the sugary alcoholic beverage Rankin and MacLellan used to drink as teens on rural Cape Breton, Blue Rev looks both back at that country past and forward at an uncertain world, reckoning with what we lose whenever we make a choice about what we want  to become.

Sure, it arrives a few years later than expected, but the answer for Alvvays is actually simple: They’ve changed gradually, growing on Blue Rev into one of their generation’s most complete and riveting rock bands.

More on ‘Here And There’

When Courtney Barnett first started playing shows she drove vast distances through the Australian bushland and desert, passing occasionally through small towns and stopping at gas-stations and fast-food outlets. Eventually she’d arrive at one of Australia’s sprawling cities, unpack the car, and sing. She wrote a lot of songs about those experiences, some which appear on her early EPs and debut album. Songs like Dead Fox, Scotty Says and Out Of the Woodwork.

After the success of her early EPs in Australia, Barnett shifted focus to playing shows in North America and Europe. Each place was new to her, without an identity formed by personal experience. She was here, then a few days later she’d be there. Destinations in those days were just names on a map. But over the past decade these nameless and faceless places revealed themselves to be the beloved homes of communities, venues, theaters and amphitheaters with thriving musical cultures and incredible audiences.

‘Here And There’ is a concept partially born of Barnett’s love of curation. Barnett has owned a label (Milk! Records) for a decade now - releasing the music of artists from her home town of Melbourne, Australia as well a few brilliant US-based friends she’s made along the way (Sleater-Kinney, Chastity Belt, Hand Habits amongst others), leveraging her deep connection with her audience to champion the music of others that she admires. 

Here And There is also a fresh take on touring, inspired by a couple of life-changing events where Courtney was invited to host and curate. The first, a festival named Sonic City in Belgium back in 2019, where Barnett was asked to curate a line-up over two days.

“Curating Sonic City was such a joy. I watched some incredible music that day. Sasami, Hachiku, Joan As Policewoman, Beverly Glenn-Copeland and so much more. I was completely mesmerized, I remember looking around the room and wondering how it could have possibly all come together so perfectly. I’m so thankful to the Sonic City crew for giving me that opportunity.”

The second, a special event on Valentines Day 2020 where Barnett hosted an event for the Newport Folk Foundation. That Valentine's Day special saw Courtney act as musical director, curator and performer along with some of today's leading folk and indie artists.

“That Valentines Day show happened in the middle of a musical epiphany for me. It pushed me just outside my technical comfort zone and left me feeling so inspired. I especially adored the collaboration of that show, it felt like one big house band swapping songs and stories. It was such an honour to share the stage with those musicians and artists that I admire.  

I was on such a high afterwards, dreaming of taking that show on the road, and then Covid halted all plans for two years. I bought a record player during isolation and spent endless hours listening to music, I think I really fell in love with music again.”
