Recorded in a majestic bluestone church in Melbourne, the result is a dreamy yet driving folk song that builds to a spectacular and moving bridge. Think Mumford & Sons with slightly higher vocals…
Brother and sister, Dan and Amy Arnott have been singing together forever. From a young age, they were carted around to music festivals all around Australia; they were raised on the festival scene.
Dan and Amy began writing songs influenced by Paul Kelly, Peter, Paul & Mary, Fleet Foxes, Grizzly Bear, Simon and Garfunkel and of course, many Australian singer songwriters.
They formed a full band with Tom, Nick and Sarah and play “exquisite, pure ballads” with beautiful harmonies, exciting band arrangements and lush textures. Combining contemporary indie influences with 60’s and 70’s folk, baroque textures and Australian singer-songwriter story telling, Dan and Amy’s songs are dynamic, shifting, exciting and thoughtful.
After the launch of their debut single Talk in 2013 and subsequent radio play on ABC 774, RRR and PBS, Dan and Amy Band released their second single, Pretend, in February of 2014 to rave reviews all over the net.
Pretend was the first single released off their debut Sometimes Life EP set for release in July. With the nostalgic yet driving second single, Sometimes Life, about be released and an album on its way, 2014 is an exciting year for Dan and Amy and their band.
Their latest single, Sometimes Life, will be released on July 11.
