A beautiful, powerful and ultimately empowering reflection on claustrophobia, both literal and metaphorical, as Resident fave Julia Jacklin deals with topics brought on by a life lived largely on the road as well as the end of a major relationship –‘Crushing’ presents a huge upgrade on an already impressive debut, wringing every inch of emotion out of the listener on a series of, at times, painfully raw moments.
Produced by Burke Reid, and recorded in near total darkness in the depths of night, there is a closeness about the songs that bring goosebumps – every minute sound captured, from the sound of Jacklin’s breathing to the ambient studio sounds, it makes for an exceptionally powerful listen from a singer who is fast becoming one of the finest artists out there.
