Two For Today #18 – (Ross Henry and Anton Franc)

Life gets in the way but the music never stops. I won’t bore you with the details, you’re just here for the music.

Oh, and Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and all that.

Ross Henry – In Blooms
It’s rare for me to be so instantly drawn to a song halfway through the first listen. In Blooms has a simplicity to it, the soft vocal overdubs coupled with the guitar creates an ambient feel. Plug those headphones in, and for four minutes and thirty nine seconds your mind wanders away. Sydney’s Ross Henry recently released his debut EP In Fields; a collection of four songs and five live recordings. Although the addition of the live recordings provides a contrast, both recordings compliment one another, and when the final track, In Cycles comes to an end, the EP feels complete.

Anton Franc – Letting Go
I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have a soft spot for Perth bands. Hello hometown. So allow me to introduce you to Anton Franc, a folktronica duo comprising of  Joshua Bowyer and Jamie Kuzich. Letting Go features on the band’s self titled debut EP, and it’s a standout track. I could ramble on about the quality of this song, from the delicate vocals, to the background sounds of children’s screams and laughter. But I won’t, much. You just need to trust me, and go listen to the song. Now. Anton Franc launch the EP this Friday in Perth. Go along, you know you should.
