When she’s not staring in her friend’s music videos Sydney singer-songwriter Julia Jacklin produces some pretty special music.

Jacklin’s latest single is “Leadlight”, the video to which was filmed in her old high school hall.

“A lot of the shots focus on the stage where I performed in the chorus for Grease and Fiddler on the Roof and the unfortunate time I chose to sing “Wonderwall” to a backing CD for a senior assembly,” Julia Jacklin explained. “I went back there recently and saw the hall in a whole new light. When I was at school I never really thought about it, it was just a boring school hall that I was forced to sit in for long assemblies and exams. Now I think it’s a really beautiful space.”
