Jack River has revealed a fresh new offering from her debut album with the stunning, multi-dimensional ‘Limo Song’. Premiering overnight on triple j along with the effervescent accompanying video dropping simultaneously, ‘Limo Song’ will feature on Jack River’s debut album Sugar Mountain out on Friday 22 June.
Jack River also revealed today, she’ll be taking her band on the road for her biggest national headline tour in support of the album. Hitting Adelaide, Melbourne, Perth, Newcastle, Sydney and Brisbane, the Sugar Mountain Tour will bring the album to life and showcase Jack River’s incredible knack for live performance in her biggest rooms to date. Jack River will follow up with sets at this year’s Splendour in the Grass, Yours & Owls Festival and will open the first show on Vance Joy’s tour in September. News of the Sugar Mountain Tour and festival dates comes fresh from Jack River’s recent debut shows across the UK at The Great Escape and Dot To Dot Festivals.
Situated in a dreamscape laced with lingering darkness, ‘Limo Song’ amplifies the underlying heartache ever-present throughout each of Sugar Mountain’s tracks. While previous single ‘Ballroom’ pulses with defiant energy, ‘Limo Song’ is a tentatively outstretched hand, full of poignant yet unanswered questions. For Jack River, the track plugs into, “that melancholic dream world where you’re looking back and looking forwards all at once”. Delicate guitar lines are set beautifully against full-bodied bass, creating imagery of a rolling limousine guided by the wispy side of Jack River’s vocals which swirl to the fore.
The video for ‘Limo Song’, like its predecessors, is the product of the undeniably kinetic creative partnership between Holly Rankin (Jack River) and director Matt Sav (Tame Impala, Pond). Set in an ice-cream shop, the clip is as sweet as it would taste, highlighting that infectious feeling of love and lust with a bold, provocative edge – the perfect balance of glitter and grit we have come to expect from Jack River.
Under her Jack River moniker, Holly Rankin is a songwriter, singer, multi-instrumentalist, producer and director. Rankin is also the creator of Grow Your Own Festival in her hometown of Forster in NSW – a festival dedicated to showcasing the widespread talent of the local community. She is also the mastermind behind Electric Lady World – a platform focused on amplifying the strength of women in music, politics, science, sport and beyond. Electric Lady has seen Rankin throw dedicated nights across Sydney and Melbourne as well as curate stages at Mountain Sounds Festival and the recent Gold Coast Commonwealth Games Festival.
Tickets to the Sugar Mountain Tour are on sale Monday 4 June at 10 am local time. With every single ticket to Jack River’s last tour snapped up almost 2 months before the first show, fans are urged to act quickly to avoid disappointment.
