I heard Vance Joy's most popular song "Riptide" (video above) over a year ago and though I did not love it quite as much as my friends did (Melany listened to the song for four straight hours while writing a paper), I still liked it and really enjoyed his voice. I downloaded a few more songs from his EP God Loves You When You're Dancing, but had no idea an album was in the works. What a nice surprise.
His debut album Dream Your Life Away released two days ago. I found out about it an hour ago and bought it forty-seven minutes ago. Now I'm blogging about it so everyone else can experience the joy I'm feeling right now.
Upon first listen, "Georgia" is definitely a favorite, if not the favorite. I could literally feel my insides melting (okay, not literally). Other great tracks include "Best That I Can" and "Who Am I" and also every other song on the album. Treat yourself.
