Australia’s most prolific and loved siblings, Angus & Julia Stone, are set to hit the road with a national tour this September, bringing their sun-drenched melodies to warm up our winter blues. Announcing five dates, including The Tivoli in Brisbane (which forms part of the upcoming Brisbane Festival program), Palais Theatre in Melbourne, the Enmore Theatre in Sydney, Adelaide’s Thebarton Theatre and Perth Concert Hall.
Joining Angus & Julia Stone is special guest Ruel. Quite literally the definition of ‘a natural’, at only 14 years of age Ruel has the soulful voice of a broken heart that had been smoking cigarettes and downing whiskey for the past 40 years. Discovered in 2015 by Grammy Award winning producer M-Phazes (Eminem, Kimbra, Daniel Johns, Meg Mac), Ruel would later make his introduction via featuring on the super producer’s single Golden Years. Their recent performance on triple j’s Like A Version clocked over half a million views in less than 48 hours and made it one of the highest viewed LAV’s of 2017. Executive produced by M-Phazes, Ruel’s debut EP is out later this year and it boasts a bold & unique sound for Australia’s newest musical prodigy.
Snow is the first taste of music to be unveiled from their highly-anticipated forthcoming studio album due out later this year. It brings a fresh mix of breezy rock with layered scratchy guitars, gentle organs and their signature intimate harmonic style. It’s simply stunning.
Fans get their first look at the new video for Snow today, directed by Onil Kotain and produced by Karim Sukarno. The video is as intimate and intoxicating as the track itself and sees Angus & Julia Stone wandering through a lost doorway in the desert, finding themselves in a snow lodge party with a cruisy gang having a good time. All of which serves as a prelude to their live shows this September.
Since the duo began performing together in 2006, their story has unfolded with an almost magical magnetism that has galvanised the world. Their four albums have amassed multi-platinum sales, with their latest single release Snow already hitting #2 most played on triple j last week, #62 on the Shazam chart (with over 8,000 shazams) and over 800,000 Spotify plays! Whilst also winning a fan base of millions over spiralling tours of the UK, Europe and North America. The band have over 5 million listeners each month who tune in to stream their music from all over the world.
