Event Details

With special guests D'Arcy Spiller and Micra

Jack River (aka Holly Rankin) shares new single ‘Real Life’, a driving, sun drenched track that marks the dawn of a new era for the Yuin-based artist.

Endless summer skies, dancing with friends in the sea, taking long distance lovers outside for the first time. These are the things Jack River futilely dreamed about when it felt like the world was spinning out of control.

“’Real Life’ is the 90’s-esque dream land I needed to take a trip to, in the depths of never-ending lockdowns. Amidst the gloom, I wanted to feel a peculiar and perfect summer, even if just for 3 minutes.”
 - Jack River

‘Real Life’ transports you to a paradise, an intoxicating hallucination of an ideal summer. It’s a kaleidoscopic blend of echo-chamber pop vocals, frenzied trumpets, and psychedelic distortion that retreats from reality - where the grass isn’t always greener. 

Drawing inspiration from a bygone decade of carefree illusion, ‘Real Life’ nods to 90s acts Primal Scream and LEN, and the energy of Hot Chocolate’s ‘You Sexy Thing’. Written and co-produced with long-time collaborator Xavier Dunn, with further co-production from Lewis Stephenson, the only goal was to make the listener feel good and depart the unsettling present.

With over 66 million streams and multiple Platinum and Gold singles, Jack River is a force to be reckoned with. Her debut album Sugar Mountain earned 3 x ARIA Award nominations, including Breakthrough Artist of the Year, Best Pop Release and Engineer of the Year; an AIR nomination for Best Independent Pop Album; and saw Holly Rankin nominated for Breakthrough Songwriter of the Year at the APRA Awards.

Next month, Jack River will be returning to the stage, with two very special headline shows at Melbourne’s Northcote Social Club on Thursday 18 August and Sydney’s Oxford Art’s Factory on Friday 19 August.
