The future is JACOTÉNE. At just 16 years old, the Melbourne schoolgirl has a voice so commanding it stops you in your tracks and demands your attention. With ‘I Need Therapy’ she merged her far flung vocal influences – you can hear the hours she’s spent listening to Amy Winehouse, Gorillaz and Gnarls Barkley in every syrupy note – with production draws from UK garage. You know what happened next: it landed her one of the top 5 most played songs across Triple J and the Unearthed High crown. Jacoténe sees music as fuel, purpose, and most importantly a space to be herself. At Laneway, she’s extending the invite to the rest of us to do the same. No days off.
