Talk Like That
JACK RIVER
‘TALK LIKE THAT’
(Single out Friday 8 July 2016 through I OH YOU)

It is with great pleasure and privilege that we officially introduce you to the newest member of the I OH YOU family and label roster – the incredible Jack River; and unleash her brand new single ‘Talk Like That’ into the world. The track is the first to be revealed from a forthcoming EP that will be released later this year.

Jack River is the alias of Holly Rankin who hails from Forster on the NSW Mid North Coast. Growing up in a coastal town, her unbreakable ties with her family and the environment are the cornerstones to Rankin’s musical inspiration. Her experiences to date, coupled with her talents as an outstanding producer (Holly features as a producer on each song from the EP), multi-instrumentalist and gifted songwriter and singer have all intertwined to form the artist she is today.

As Rankin describes it… “I wrote Talk Like That at 3am after walking around the streets with some friends in Sydney. I recorded it in bed as soon as I got home with my laptop and electric guitar, it was one of those songs that was written quickly cause the feeling was so potent and instant from the evenings events.”

“It’s about that person you love that is never fully in your life, but always there, and kinda fucking you around even if they don’t know it. It’s an ode to not compromising, to not being the one that goes out of her/his way to get what they want. But all the while, still really wanting that person to just turn around and say ‘I want you’.”

Talk Like That’ was co-produced by Holly Rankin and Xavier Dunn, before being mixed by Ben Allen (Deerhunter, Animal Collective, MIA) in Atlanta. With an EP full of new music almost ready to be revealed, 2016 is shaping up to be the break-out year for Jack River.
