Crisp and fresh as the Snow that frames their latest record, Angus & Julia Stone have quickly announced a 2018 Australian tour in the wake of their 2017 dates selling out in record time. As new singles ‘Chateau’ and ‘Snow’ seep slowly and beautifully into our national consciousness, the softly spoken siblings fourth studio effort is shooting up the charts with a huge ARIA debut at #2, a feature album on triple j and over 9 million streams collectively between the two lead singles on Spotify! The duo will perform at metro venues in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane in April and May next year.
Having grown up coated in the sun soaked sand of Sydney’s Northern Beaches, Angus & Julia Stone are no strangers to the delights of an Australian summer. Their tunes have always carried that unmistakable sepia glare to them; sending Angus’ smooth alto and Julia’s more wistful soprano into the top 10 of the ARIA charts for all four of their records to date. ‘Big Jet Plane’, ‘Heart Beats Slow’, ‘And The Boys’ and many more have made the jump from festival favourites to bona fide classics.
In contrast to this Vitamin D dependency, Snow has actually been a crucial element in the Stone story. Developing an affinity for colder climates, the thermal lyrics and melodies of their latest release have been embraced by listeners (‘Snow’ hitting the #1 spot for most played on triple j), described as “Mellow gold” by News Ltd. Angus & Julia Stone are getting set to treat their legion of adoring fans to a dreamy live rendition of Snowand its unmistakable magic.
Watch their latest music video for ‘Chateau’, starring Australian actors Courtney Eaton, who starred most recently in Mad Max Fury Road, and Dacre Montgomery, who featured in Power Rangers and is the new lead in Stranger Things season 2. Set against the stunning backdrop of Mexico, it’s all about exploring those exquisite road trip vibes.
