WE TOOK A WALK WITH JACK RIVER THROUGH SUGAR MOUNTAIN
Sydney psych pop queen Jack River (aka Holly Rankin) has today released Sugar Mountain, her stunning debut album. Rankin has crafted a collection of tracks sophisticated in their duality, packaging deeply personal lyrics into shimmering pop tracks.
From glittery dance floor bangers ‘Fools Gold’, ‘Limo Song’ and ‘Ballroom’ to the more intimate and personal ‘In Infinity’ and ‘Her Smile’, Sugar Mountain is at once dreamy and sweet and imbued with grit and sorrow. Already kicking goals in the live music scene, curating all women Electric Lady tours and the annual Grow Your Own festival, this album cements Rankin’s status as a rising star of Australian music.
