This is so verryyy....well Vance Joy. And that is nothing if it's not a good thing.
Looking for ball crushing male rock? Then you'll be disappointed. This ain't exactly "Freak on a Leash" or "2 Minutes to Midnight" (2 songs from 2 bands in town this week actually - Korn and Iron Maiden respectively), in fact this new song makes Imagine Dragons sound like nu metal. But there's just something about the effortless vocals and wistful acoustic guitar of Vance Joy that has my attention, and I'm not alone- This YouTube video of his new release was posted today and already has upwards of 50,000 views. Not bad for a lawyer from Australia (Vance, aka James Keogh, received his law degree in his home country before following his dream to write songs, and aren't we glad he did).
He's currently working on his second album on which this track will live.
Enjoy the song and this great well done video starring Vance and actress Angela Sarafyan, who you might recognize from the HBO series Westworld (which has 22 Emmy nominations).
