Aussie artist Julia Jacklin taps into the struggles of portraying yourself the ‘right way’ in her new song “Body.” The video features Julia driving to the vast openness of the desert where she channels the classic roadtrip/Spaghetti West vibe. “Body” is a slow-burning, downtempo jam that reflects on the fears and insecurities of building your image the way you want it – it’s simple, but never easy:

“The song speaks for itself I think but I’d say it’s just a very long and exaggerated sigh. Born from feelings of powerlessness when it comes to the impossible task of representing yourself the way you think is right; personally and professionally. When you feel like everything is for the taking no matter what you do.”

If Julia looks familiar, you’re not imagining anything – she’s also the member of Aussie trio Phantiastic Ferniture. The gal is currently wrapping up her final shows with First Aid Kit and working on a new album she’ll be releasing early next year. Go see her:
