Julia Stone

Julia StoneJulia Stone is from Sidney. Her second album ‘By The Horns’ is just out, or will be in a few days depending on where you live.

She’s got a trembling, smoky voice so full of emotions that it seems it could collapse at any moment. She’s not angry or excited, but enormously longing and grieving. It’s so much that it can’t be but an act, otherwise she’d already live in a loony bin.

Doesn’t it sound like Lana Del Rey? It does. Even so, while I can’t stand Lana, I find Stone’s performance soothing and endearing, probably because it’s not so outrageously tasteless. It’s just a tiny bit tawdry in a lovable way.
