Wait, Australia Can Do Folky Pop, Too?

My listening habits have given me the notion that only hard-hitting electro rock (or Silverchair) comes outta the land down under.  But, brother and sister duo Angus and Julia Stone are here to enlighten me to the wonderful compositions that don’t have to be electronically beat driven and geared for the club kid in you.  Instead, the siblings put together folky arrangements with elements of chamber pop and a subtle country twang, too. At least on “Just a Boy” they do.  This single stems from 2008’s Just a Boy EP.  On first listen, their sound was a more approachable Earlimart. Maybe it’s the light vocals; or the minimalistic approach; maybe the uplifting melody does it, but regardless, “Just a Boy” colors the gray skies light blue around here.  Recommended.

And I apologize if this is already in rotation by you – I feel late to this party…
