We're taller when we wake up in the morning. Overnight our spines are spared the pressures of gravity, so we stretch and relax. So too for astronauts away from Earth's oppressive atmosphere. But back on the surface we know what it's like to feel compressed, by air, by others, and the weight of our own expectations. These forces and the toll they take are skilfully captured by the crushing new album by Julia Jacklin. Lyrics explore human connection, loss, the constraints we face, and the catharsis of breaking through. The country, rock and folk arrangements are spacious, allowing each element room to breathe and expand as we listen.
