When Melbourne indie-folk duo Sweet Jean released their debut album Dear Departure in 2013 the industry stood up and took notice. Individually Sime Nugent and Alice Keath were already well respected on the local scene but their musical coming together and subsequent long player was way more than the sum of its parts.
After being relatively quiet recently (outside of a few gigs) Sweet Jean have announced plans to release their sophomore album Monday to Friday on the 13th May.
The album will feature 10 tracks produced by bandmate John Castle (Vance Joy, Washington, The Bamboos).
“In the past we’ve written about other people in other times and places, and for this album we wanted to stay in the here and now and write about some of the significant and insignificant things that are rolling around us,” Sweet Jean said of writing the album. “For our first album we worked on happy/sad. This time we wanted to bring big/small to the table.”
The first single from Monday to Friday is the 70s throwback “Everything Changes” – take a listen below:
