Australian alt-pop singer Jack River is back with a brand new song named “Later Flight”. The track arrives alongside a captivating music video directed by longtime collaborator, Matt Sav.
Jack River, whose real name is Holly Isabella Rankin, is a Sydney based singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer. She discovered her artistic side at a very early age, “I just had an attraction to writing and also recording things. I’ve always been fascinated by people and stories and nature”.
Rankin released her debut EP called On Nature Part One back in 2013 via Waterfront Records, immediately gaining the attention of music critics and fans. She went on to signing with Universal Music Australia, which resulted in a string of new singles, including “Talk Like That”, and another EP, Highway Songs No. 2. In 2017, the rising pop star opened for the legendary Midnight Oil, before embarking on her own Fool’s Gold Tour.
In June last year, Jack River dropped her debut full-length titled Sugar Mountain, which refers to Neil Young’s track of the same name. The album, released to rave reviews, reached No. 11 on the ARIA Albums Chart and brought the singer three nominations at the 2018 ARIA Music Awards: Breakthrough Artist, Best Pop Release and Engineer of the Year.
Having reissued her successful debut earlier this year, the Aussie singer is back with a new tune, “Later Flight”. The idea for the song was born when the artist, completely absorbed by her work with producer Styalz Fuego (The Knocks, G Flip, Icona Pop), had to book a later flight home from Melbourne. In the singer’s own words, “this feeling of rushing, loving and dreaming of home drove the song to where it is”.
“I wasn’t sure if I had the guts to say something as bold as ‘I will love you for all of my life’”, she adds, addressing the song’s lyrics. “Later Flight” is accompanied by a fascinating clip helmed by Matt Sav, who also created visuals for other singles from Jack River, including “Adolescent” dropped earlier this year.
