Debut Album Don’t Let The Kids Win Out October 7th Via Transgressive Records.
Australian alt country singer songwriter Julia Jacklin has shared another new single from her upcoming debut album Don’t Let The Kids Win. ‘Coming of Age’ is probably the biggest track of the record, with an upbeat rhythm and reverb heavy fuzzed up guitars playing a prominent role. Lyrically, the track is about accepting the passage of time and using it as incentive to achieve and do things rather than be fearful of it.
“This song is louder than my other songs, more guitars, more noise,” says Julia of the track. “It’s about the need for a new muse when one has given you all it can. It’s also like a mirror pep talk. Looking at yourself in the mirror and saying, “Come on girl!”, stop fretting over the passing of time and just get to work”.
