I just came across the new video for Angus and Julia Stone’s ‘Hold On’. Directed by Kiku Ohe, it’s quite a beautiful clip that captures the stark emotional levels of the song.
Although I’ve never been particularly obsessed with Angus and Julia Stone, I really do enjoy their music. I went to see them play at Manchester’s Ruby Lounge back in April, and I was suitably impressed. Julia especially blew me away. She exuded an effortless talent that ranged from her perfect, haunting vocals to her mastery of several instruments. Whilst Angus also has a lovely voice, the tracks where Julia takes the lead have always struck a deeper chord for me. I love the way ‘Hold On’ creeps and grows, whilst managing to keep you enthralled.
The band are coming back to the UK at the end of the year, catch them at the following dates:
Dec 4th – St. George’s Church, Brighton
Dec 5th – The Wardrobe, Leeds
Dec 6th – Tripod, Dublin
Dec 7th – Oran Mor, Glasgow
