Written at the end of the process, new single ‘Confess’ is yet another stunning, multi-dimensional gemstone from the crown that is Jack River’s first LP, Sugar Mountain. After writing and recording an album built on finding individual strength and dreams, the writing of this song brought a strong sense of truth to Holly Rankin (Jack River).

“‘Confess’ made me realise that despite being fiercely independent, it’s ok to need the people around you, and to allow them to be there for during times of darkness and struggle. It felt extremely liberating, a huge emotional release, to write a song asking for love, when so many of my songs have an underlying sense of independence, and themes of not or relying on others to build your own strength.” – Jack River

‘Confess’ is a tribute to lessons learnt during the process of creating Sugar Mountain, and being allowed the space to appreciate the balance of being strong and vulnerable at the same time. It’s the celebration of the beginning of something new.

With its 90’s acoustic guitar intro leading into Rankin’s delicate vocals, ‘Confess’ hits its stride as the journey starts to build. It’s crescendo is an audio tsunami, with sweeping vocals racing into an emotional rollercoaster through a galaxy of pure alt-pop bliss. Self-written, composed & co-produced alongside Xavier Dunn and John Castle, and mixed by Spike Stent, ‘Confess’ follows on from singles ‘Fool’s Gold’, ‘Fault Line’, ‘Ballroom’ and ‘Limo Song’ which have collectively amassed over 9.2 million Spotify streams.

With her debut album Sugar Mountain, Jack River has released one of the year’s most inspiring pop records. Released on June 22 with an ARIA Chart debut of #11, Sugar Mountain is a phosphorescent album that glows with pop highs and spacey riffs, but come closer and you’ll glimpse the darkness in its depths. Sugar Mountain is an ode to an imagined youth that Rankin was never able to realise; following a family tragedy, Rankin’s world was turned upside down and songwriting became her survival tool.

Already this year, Jack River has toured throughout Australia, playing to sold out crowds on headline shows, opening for dance/electronic heavy weights Peking Duk on the East Coast leg of their mammoth The Wasted Tour, debuting her live show to crowds in the UK, and playing to a packed out G.W. McLennan tent at Splendour in the Grass, with fans and critics alike hailing it as one of the highlights of the festival.

Don’t miss Jack River at the top of her game when she tours the country throughout September on her biggest headline tour to date, playing multiple shows across metro cities and regional centres on the Sugar Mountain Tour.
