Vance Joy – Riptide

James Keogh is the Melbourne based singer behind the project known as Vance Joy, who’s new tune ‘Riptide’ is a folk pop gem.

‘Riptide’ contains a great mix of eclectic lighthearted percussion with a distinct folk vibe, which when combined with the hazy backing harmonies and the bouncying beats of the acoustic guitar, just hits the spot. Its reminds me a little of a Cosmo Jarvis number, with both showing off that upbeat folk style and sporting lead vocalists with pheonmenally clear and strong vocals. I personally cannot get enough of ‘Riptide’ lately and given that its had over 100,000 views on soundcloud, I think many others are addicted too.
