It’s easy to forget a time when there were problems in the world which didn’t centre around the word ‘coronavirus’, but upon the premiere of her new track ‘baby jesus is nobody’s baby now’, Julia Jacklin is providing a stark reminder.
“2019 was a pretty rough one for my family,” she recalls. “I was touring the whole year carrying a lot of guilt for not being able to be at home. Singing super sad songs every night was a blessing and a curse depending on the day.” “I was imagining Christmas as being this time where we all came together again and took a collective breath but then the bushfires hit and my family live in the country so it was a direct threat. I was living in Melbourne, still pretty new to it, and wasn’t able to go home, the roads were blocked and my family were being evacuated periodically for a month.”
“At one point Melbourne was blanketed in smoke from the fires, the sun was this menacing red, it felt apocalyptic and pretty hopeless. I wrote this in my room looking forward to 2020, hoping it would be a reset of some kind lol.”
