As part of the Sub Pop Singles Club...

Julia Jacklin has shared two new songs, 'to Perth, before the border closes' and 'CRY'.

The songwriter's second album 'Crushing' was critically lauded, and sparked a lengthy international tour.

Returning to Australia, Julia has linked with long-time friend and producer Ryan Brennan to sculpt two brand new songs.

Out now as part of the Sub Pop singles club, 'to, Perth, before the border closes' is a rumination on travel and identity.

On the flip, 'CRY' is a Dolly Parton tinged stream of consciousness, featuring close friends Jennifer Aslett, Christ Wright and Jacob Diamond.

Of the A-side, Julia comments:

“I’ve moved around a lot the last five years; chasing things, love, work, something new, whatever and there’s always this fear that I’m leaving good things behind just to go somewhere else and be lonely. Whispering 'everything changes' to myself helps get me to sleep at night. I started writing this song in Melbourne and finished it in Perth. It was like a little song bridge between the two cities to make the change easier.”
