Aussie singer Jack River has today released shimmery indie pop banger ‘Limo Song’, the latest offering from her forthcoming debut album Sugar Mountain. With the LP due for release on Friday June 22, the artist has also revealed details for a huge album launch tour kicking off in September.
‘Limo Song’ sees River (aka NSW musician Holly Rankin) further cement her own unique brand of glittery, multi-dimensional dream pop. The accompanying video is set in a picture perfect yet vaguely sinister pastel dreamscape, with Rankin playing the part of ice cream store waitress. The visual chaos of the video mirrors the track’s dark undertone, Rankin explaining its inspiration as “that melancholic dream world where you’re looking back and looking forwards all at once”. With ‘Limo Song‘ as similarly infectious as ‘Fault Line‘, ‘Ballroom‘ and ‘Fool’s Gold’, Sugar Mountain already boasts an impressive track list, shaping up to be an electrifying debut.
Somewhat of a champion of female representation in music, Rankin is the brains behind Electric Lady World, a project that has seen her book all female lineups for a number of events since its inception early last year. The Sugar Mountain tour will be her biggest national run of shows to date, with appearances booked for Adelaide, Melbourne, Perth, Newcastle, Sydney and Brisbane. The tour’s announcement comes as she gears up appearances at both Splendour in the Grass and Yours and Owls Festival, as well as a lucrative support slot at Vance Joy’s Melbourne show.
Tickets to the Sugar Mountain Tour will be available to purchase here from 10am on Monday 4 June.
