‘Cold Caller’ is the second track from Julia Jacklin’s ‘Eastwick’/’Cold Caller’ AA-side single which has been released digitally, and on limited edition vinyl on Transgressive Records. Following the release of the video for ‘Eastwick’, ‘Cold Caller’ is an ode to Jacklin’s sister.

Jacklin explains how ‘Cold Caller’ and the 7” came to be: “I started writing this song when my older sister told me she was pregnant. I know people get pregnant all the time but this was different, this was my sister. The one who explained tampons to me, told me what kissing felt like, convinced mum to let me shave my legs, sung ”Boys of Summer” acapella at the school talent quest.”

I went to New Zealand to record this 7 inch and on the first day she went into labour, I was checking my phone every 10 mins but managed to write the second part of the song. That night I had all these crazy nightmares, where she kept disappearing into the dark and every time I caught up to her she’d slip out of my hands again. I woke up in an absolute state to the news that she had given birth to a healthy baby boy. I went into the studio and recorded this song. So this is for her, my wonderful sister Emma.
