Julien Baker – Sprained Ankle

Julien Baker is a 19-year-old singer/songwriter from Memphis, Tennessee, who has released a few days ago her first single Sprained Ankle. It’s an emotional, stripped-down song that straightly digs into the soul of its author. It will be the title track of Baker’s debut album, which will be released on October 23rd through 6131 Records.

Julien begun to write the nine songs that will be on the record’s tracklist last year, when she relocated from Memphis to Murfreesboro for college. Away from family and friends, including also her band Forrister, she has taken refuge in writing in order to allow a creative outlet for her loneliness.

Judging by this first effort, we can honestly say that the result seems to be extremely promising. Listen below.
