Australian folk rock/indie duo Angus and Julia Stone return to New Zealand this December, bringing their Snow Tour to iconic venues in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.
Following on from a sold-out tour in Australia, the duo will play a series of all ages, intimate venues around the country including Auckland’s The Civic (December 15), Wellington’s St James Theatre (December 16) and Christchurch’s Isaac Theatre Royal (December 17), as they celebrate the release of their brand new single ‘Snow’, the title track from their forthcoming album.
'Snow' was recorded in Angus’ Byron Bay cottage studio and saw the siblings write the entire album together — a suggestion that first came from producer Rick Rubin, who produced the pair’s 2014 self-titled album.
“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 recently told musicfeeds.com.au. “This time round though, every song on the record we wrote together.”
“It was quite magical because Angus and I have never spent that much time together, just the two of us,” adds Julia.
Since they began performing together in 2006, Angus and Julia Stone’s story has unfolded with an almost magical magnetism that has galvanised the world. Their albums have amassed multi-platinum sales, numerous ARIA and APRA Awards at home, and amassed a fan base of millions over the course of tours of the UK, Europe and North America. The band has more than five million listeners each month who tune in to stream their music from all over the world.
Their quietly hypnotic songs have infiltrated our screens, from the recent Woody Harrelson film The Edge of 17 to TV shows like Pretty Little Liars, Suits and Revenge. The pair has also cast their spell over the world's key festivals including Coachella, Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits and Splendour in The Grass.
