Julia Jacklin - "Pool Party"

Julia Jacklin's debut single, "Pool Party," is good. Really good. In fact, it's ridiculous how good this is. A 25 year old from Australia shouldn't be able to nail the Americana thing this well, but she somehow has. It's this stunningly smooth alt-pop-country song, that just mesmerizes for its entire four minute length. I've listened to this song about thirty times over the past few days, and I can't quite define what makes it so good and captivating. It's completely familiar and isn't truly breaking any new ground, but somehow it sounds completely fresh and unique. It just is good, and that's all it needs to be.

For more information on Julia Jacklin, check out her website and Facebook. Make sure you watch the video for "Pool Party" below, or, at the very least, listen to the song. I can't imagine you regretting it.
