Aussie artist Julia Jacklin nails the feeling of mental claustrophobia in her single “Head Alone” where she takes us from the confined space to the exhilarating feeling of freedom. The track is a taste of her upcoming second album, Crushing, which will be out on February 22 via Polyvinyl Record. Enjoy below:

“I wrote most of ‘Head Alone’ on tour, singing it to myself, looking out the window on endless car journeys. It’s not a song that comes from a singular experience. It came from two years of feeling like the space around me shrinking to the point where I couldn’t even raise my arms. This song is me raising my arms and running into an open field. A bit of a plea to those around me to give me space and a song to remind myself that’s it’s okay to enforce boundaries, the good people in your life will listen, adapt and still love you.” explained Julia.

Julia will embark on an extensive world tour towards the end of this month, so go see her:
