If you asked anyone two weeks ago who Vance Joy was, no one would have a clue. However last week saw the release of his debt EP, God Loves You When You’re Dancing and he has since generated a huge amount of attention. The Australian artist has managed to tap into that niche of music which people are ever hungry for. His sound is a mix of Bon Iver and Mumford and Sons; let’s hope he doesn’t follow in the same steps as the latter.
Two tracks are publicly released, From Afar and Riptide both equally enjoyable. There are two reasons I’m going to post Riptide: Firstly because it’s so bloody good and I’m sure you’ll love it. Secondly because it’s so damn catchy and like me, I want you all to be cursed with it playing in your head for the next few days. Enjoy.
