The first notes of 'Snow' are instantly transporting. The guitar is a scratchy, wooden memory laid over a moment of silence. The gently driving organ beat emerges and takes you with it, beginning the next enchanting journey with the brother-sister duo. "'Snow' is both of us. We sat down and wrote it together," Angus says.
'Snow' emerged from the overall album recording process and as Julia says: "It was quite magical because Angus and I have never spent that much time together, just the two of us.
"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 Sydney-born siblings produced and largely engineered it themselves, in Angus's cottage studio, Belafonté, in the Byron Bay hinterland.
With their biggest shows to date in Europe and the UK upcoming, keep an eye out for Angie & Julia Stone Australian tour dates soon.
