13-11-2017 12:00:00 13-11-2017 12:00:00 America/New_York Julia Jacklin | 9:00 PM Growing up in the Blue Mountains to a family of teachers, Jacklin discovered an avenue to art at the age of 10, thanks to an unlikely source: Britney Spears. Jacklin chanced upon a documentary about the pop star while on family holiday. "By the time Britney was 12 she'd achieved a lot," says Jacklin."I remember thinking, 'Shit, what have I done with my life? I haven't achieved anything.' So I was like, 'Mum, as soon as we get home from this holiday I need to go to singing lessons.' Classical singing lessons were the only kind in the area, but Jacklin took to it. Voice control was crucial, and Jacklin flourished. But the lack of expression had the teen seeking substance, and she wound up in a high school band, "wearing surf clothing and doing a lot of high jumps" singing Avril Lavigne and Evanescence covers. It wasn't much but she was hooked. Don't mistake this awareness for nostalgia. "It's not that I want to go back to that time at all," says Jacklin. "It's trying to figure out how to be responsible when you don't identify with who you were anymore." "All my friends at this age are freaking out. Everyone's constantly talking about being old. "Don't Let The Kids Win" is saying yeah we're getting older but it's not so special. It's not unique. Everyone has dealt with this and it's going to keep feeling weird. So I'm freaking out about it too but that song is trying to convince myself: let's live now and just be old when we're old." http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=244456 Rough Trade NYC Rough Trade NYC
