“From the very beginning, I staged ‘Ballroom’ in an arena in my head and built in a beating, constant heartbeat throughout that felt like my own. The song is built of that untouchable determination that drives through your blood when you want something so bad, nothing can stop you.” – Jack River

It’s that electric sense of steadfast determination drawing you into ‘Ballroom’, the latest single from Jack River, taken from her debut LP Sugar Mountain, scheduled for release Friday 22 June through I OH YOU. The raw beauty in ‘Ballroom’ continues to remind us that the artist – spearhead of festivals Electric Lady and Grow Your Own and a singer-songwriter selling out her recent national tour – is a force to be reckoned with in the alt-pop landscape.

‘Ballroom’ is a love song, but not just in the traditional romantic sense. Listen a little deeper, and there’s a depth propelling the dream. It’s a now or never kind of track, to all the doubters who want to see you falter. The tune swirls the listener through the alternate reality Jack River created to help her heal through a personal tragedy, and all the things that come along with it.

Self-produced alongside Xavier Dunn, and mixed by Spike Stent in LA, ‘Ballroom’ follows on from singles ‘Fool’s Gold’ and ‘Fault Line’ which have collectively amassed over 3.1 million Spotify streams. Since premiering on triple j Good Nights, ‘Ballroom’ has been on high rotation, with its constant drumbeat and sweeping production creating a sonic journey of pure alt-pop bliss.

Jack River is set to open for dance/electronic heavy weights Peking Duk on the East Coast leg of their mammoth ‘The Wasted Tour’, kicking off this weekend, before heading to the UK to play The Great Escape and Dot To Dot Festivals, then coming home to play Splendour in the Grass and support Vance Joy at his Melbourne Rod Laver show in September.

With a huge touring schedule, and the release of her highly anticipated debut LP on the horizon, it’s certainly shaping up to be a big year for Jack River!
