Two Steps On The Water
It feels hard to be surprised by new music today but I feel like that
statement could reflect on almost anything.
I guess, so much has been done so new sounds and visions have to be
distinctive. Special. Right for now.
I was really blown away the first time that I heard Two Steps On The Water.
The band are a Melbourne based three piece who have been playing since 2014.
Firstly it’s definitely the vocals of guitarist June Jones who also writes
all of the songs.
Then it’s the style of music which seems folk based and not normally on my horizon
but it is combined with country and punk.
It is very emotional but also, wild and free.
Sienna Thornton plays violin and Jonathan Nash plays drums with both also doing vocals.
I love the inclusion of trumpet (played by Charlie Woods) which works so well
with the violin.
They have just released a new album called God Forbid Anyone Look Me In The Eye (pictured above) available on vinyl in an edition of 300 or a digital version available here.
The cover artwork was done by Lee Lai and you can see more of Lee's work here.
Watch the video for their new single release YoYo here made by Nina Renee and Olivia A Fay here.
