Today it is with great excitement that we announce the news that Jack River will be releasing her debut EP Highway Songs No.2 on the 7th of October through I OH YOU.
Having released the instantly infectious single ‘Talk Like That’ (the first single from Highway Songs No.2) in early July, Jack River’s (AKA Holly Rankin) unique brand of pop music and relatable lyricism has seemingly caught the attention of many critics and newfound fans around the country. This response has seen ‘Talk Like That’ reach the top 20 most played charts on triple j, strong support from community radio and amassed an impressive 245,000+ streams across all digital platforms.
With ‘Talk Like That’ showing no signs of slowing down in the near future, today we’re happy to reveal Jack River’s cover of Cigarettes After Sex’s cult classic ‘Nothing’s Gonna Hurt You Baby’, which sees Rankin strip things back in a DIY home recording from her share house; presented with a video that was directed, shot and edited by Rankin while she was recently in the US.[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WxeE2TmWhYc[/youtube]
The cover, alongside ‘Talk Like That’ and three new original tracks will form Jack River’s debut EP Highway Songs No.2, which will drop on the 7th of October and is available for pre-order now HERE.
