It doesn’t get too much more ‘indie’ than this folks. Slow mellow lyricism, tambourines, banjos, falsetto bridges, large bass drums, howls into the wind… oh get taken away in this Riptide, by Vance Joy. Now personally I love the name Vance Joy, but like the majority of this world, I’m sure he has received some haters at one point or another. This is Vance Joy’s 2nd single from his debut EP God Loves You When You’re Dancing. Which is not only the title of the EP but also 100% fact, and can be looked up in the Webster under “truth”. The track ‘Riptide’ is out for purchase once the EP is released on March 22nd. Some bust out dem wallets. Come on down to the Riptide, and come on down to the dark side.
“Vance Joy has an original voice which at first he kept to himself. Feeding on a diet of The Pogues, Paul Kelly, and whatever else was playing, he cut his teeth performing at open mike nights in Melbourne. It is folk music with pop influences. His songs capture the familiar pulse of everyday experiences in a unique and celebratory manner. His lyrics will reach out to you and hold on for a moment.”
I reary wish I could say there was a FREE DOWNload, but I’m not a liar. It’s never been my cup of soup….lying. Vance currently doesn’t have any plans to venture beyond Down Under, but hey…if he keeps making music like this, and he’ll be well on his way. BUT he is currently touring throughout major cities in Australia. SO, say you’re in Australia…. or plan to be someday…. Check out Vance Joy. Get Your Ears Wet!
