Friday Folk Flashback

“Sheep-Crook and Black Dog” – Steeleye Span

Listen to the New Tobias Single “City Walk”

Melbourne based singer-songwriter Tobias has just released his brand new single “City Walk”. The track is taken from Tobias’ 2016 album Alive and comes just as he’s about to kick off a tour of regional Queensland with Fanny Lumsden.

“”City Walk” is really a song about a time when I lived in Brisbane,” Tobias explained. “I used to live in West End and would catch the city cat home at night, sometimes being the only one on board. I would stand up the front of the boat and take in the night air and city lights. Before long, I would be sitting on the front steps of my share house (an old Queenslander) listening to music from The Smiths, The Cure and Go Betweens and watching the summer nights evolve on the street. It was a lonely but wonderful time. “City Walk” resembles the sound and feeling from this time and was written when I was last on tour in Brisbane. I took a ride on the Brisbane city cat at night after my gig and reflected on what it was like to live in this lovely city.”

Check out “City Walk” here:

Sydney indie-folk singer-songwriter Emma Davis has just released the gorgeous new clip for her single “Getting Better”.

The video was filmed around the Illawarra Coast and directed by popular cinematographer Sam Brumby.

“To me, the song is about thinking and overthinking and realising you still have so much more to learn about your own mind, but that that’s alright,” Davis explained. “I wanted to give an insight into someone trying hard to have a solo adventure, struggling to make it work at every step but still being comfortable with the idea of sadness.”

Check out the video for “Getting Better” here:

Emma Davis will be hitting the Golden Age stage in Sydney on the 17th August – check out the official Facebook event for more details.

Having already released their new single “Snow” and announcing a September tour it’s no surprise that this week Angus & Julia Stone also revealed details of a brand new album.

Also titled Snow, the new album is due to be released on the 15th September. The album follows their 2014 self titled release which was produced by Rick Rubin.

“That was the first time that we actually started writing together, in the same room, and I guess we took a leaf from that chapter into this record,” Angus Stone explained. “This time round though, every song on the record we wrote together”

Snow is self produced by the pair and was recorded in Angus Stone’s Byron Bay hinterland cottage studio.

“It was quite magical because Angus and I have never spent that much time together, just the two of us,” says Julia Stone. “There’s always at least an engineer or tour manager but the last phase of writing and recording was just eight weeks of him and me and the quiet of the land. It was a beautiful time.”

The full track listing and album teaser for Snow are below:

1. Snow
2. Oakwood
3. Chateau
4. Cellar Door
5. Sleep Alone
6. Make It Out Alive
7. Who Do You Think You Are
8. Nothing Else
9. My House Your House
10. Bloodhound
11. Baudelaire
12. Sylvester Stallone

Angus & Julia Stone will be touring this September – the full dates are here:

Thursday 21st September – Tivoli, Brisbane, QLD
Saturday 23rd September – Palais Theatre, Melbourne, VIC
Tuesday 26th September – Enmore Theatre, Sydney, NSW
