Jack River has fast garnered a rep for making waves both behind the scenes and at the forefront of alt-pop perfection in Australia’s music industry. Aside from spearheading the incredible Electric Lady Festival, celebrating female talent in Australia, she’s taken over the festival and live music circuit with her hazy take on folk.

Premiering on triple j’s Good Nights last night, the trailblazer has now released a stunning new track, ‘Ballroom’ with an accompanying, dizzyingly beautiful technicolour music video.

The track showcases River’s penchant for eclectic pop music and hauntingly beautiful lyricism, which she said was written by imagining “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 will be bringing her epic live show to worshipers around the country this March on her Fault Line Tour, with the vast majority of shows already sold out.
