Irish singer-songwriter Sorcha Richardson has been cultivating a cult fanbase for several years. Songs such as ‘Ruin Your Night’, ‘Petrol Station’ and ‘Can’t We Pretend’ are evocative vignettes of a moment in time which find the poetry in introspection, with a tangible nod to key influences such as Sharon Van Etten, Arcade Fire, Phoebe Bridgers and Julia Jacklin.
Last year, Richardson released the biggest artistic statement of her career with her debut album, First Prize Bravery. It’s a collection of lyrical snapshots of life as a twentysomething, accompanied by the desires, doubts and developments that the decade delivers.
Following her 2019 debut album, Sorcha Richardson has shared her brand new single ‘The Starlight Lounge’, co-produced by James Vincent McMorrow.
Julia Jacklin has officially released her dreamy cover of The Strokes hit ‘Someday’. Having originally recorded her version of the song for Triple J as part of their Like A Version series, Jacklin has released her slowed down studio version of the 2001 indie anthem.
The release comes as a break in touring for Jacklin who has just completed a run of sold-out headline shows in the UK and Europe earlier this year in support of her sophomore record, Crushing.

Phantastic Ferniture is an Australian dreamy basement-pop trio led by Julia Jacklin a singer-songwriter whose 2016 album, Don’t Let the Kids Win, won her much critical acclaim.
Emboldened by solo success, and with clear ambitions to not just pick one lane, Jacklin has teamed up with her friends Elizabeth Hughes and Ryan K Brennan to become Phantastic Ferniture.
The band, which they describe as a light-hearted project, formed in the basement of a pizza place in Sydney at a birthday party when all 10 of the people who were there agreed to form a band. Only four remembered their promise the next day, and three resolved to actually do it.
Compared to the great ladies of contemporary folk such as Sharon Van Etten, Angel Olsen and Courtney Barnett, the Australian singer Julia Jacklin has sneaked onto the best of the year list with a surprisingly mature album that travels from the rock and roll of the fifties to the best of contemporary folk through songs which include “Coming Of Age” and “Pool Party”. A delightful timeless album that Jacklin, who is just twenty-five, imbues with her elegant and velvety voice to become one of the surprising phenomenon of 2016. This year she will be playing at Primavera Sound.
