“This is a song for all the girls and boys sick of shallow, drunk and wasted love and the culture that celebrates it.”
– Jack River

Jack River dips her toes into a hazy ‘90s rock essence and emerges with glistening new track ‘Adolescent’, demanding to be heard through blasting speakers and sung at the top of your lungs.

Born in New York City a couple of years ago, ‘Adolescent’ is a boycott to conventional pop subject matter, questioning youth’s age old obsession with love and lust. Calling out the façade of social media culture’s infatuation with aesthetics, this is a song for all the boys and girls chasing something deeper and grittier, something with meaning.

Punchy guitars introduce the track and are met with River’s bold demeanor: ‘Is it love that you need? Oh no, no no, you won’t find it in me’. Her signature, sweet vocals sugar coat the bitter reality of an engrossed generation, calling to those fed up with the conventional norm. Dusky rock undertones are wrapped up in a glittery bundle of delicious pop production and lush vocal melodies, making ‘Adolescent’ one of River’s standout singles.

‘Adolescent’ welcomes Jack River, the moniker of Holly Rankin, into the New Year after a mammoth 2018. Following from singles ‘Fault Line’, ‘Ballroom’, ‘Confess’ and ARIA Certified Gold gem, ‘Fool’s Gold’, ‘Adolescent’ adds a unique sparkle to River’s glowing catalogue.

The release of 2018’s debut album Sugar Mountain earned River three ARIA Award nominations, including Breakthrough Artist, Best Pop Release and Engineer of the Year, an APRA nomination for Breakthrough Songwriter of the Year, as well as support slots for international indie-pop heavyweight Florence + The Machine, Aussie idol Vance Joy and notorious party-starting duo Peking Duk, with River featuring on their latest sweet single ‘Sugar’.

Accompanying the news of a fresh single, Jack River announces the release of the deluxe version of Sugar Mountain. Featuring new single ‘Adolescent’, the deluxe album will also include acoustic versions of ‘Fault Line’ and ‘Fool’s Gold’ along with a special cover from the album title’s inspiration; Neil Young’s ‘Sugar Mountain’. Available digitally and pressed on a limited number of vinyl, make sure you get your hands on this jewel ASAP, out Friday 31 May.

Following the sold-out Sugar Mountain national tour in 2018, Jack River returns to the stage, this time for the Sugar Mountain Ball. With some extra sweet treats in store for fans, River will play in her biggest headline venues to date. Tickets are on sale now at jackrivermusic.com.

Don’t miss Jack River bring her shimmering world to the stage this May & June with ‘Adolescent’ to make its performance debut!
