Aussie queen, Julia Stone, returns from the musical wilderness after eight years with cracking new tune, "Break." Abandoning the folk influences of her early work, Stone delivers an experimental dose of eclectic pop in the mould of Robyn.
Produced by St. Vincent (aka Annie Clark, who also plays on the song) and Thomas Bartlett (Yoko Ono, Sufjan Stevens) with contributions from Stella Mozgawa of Warpaint and Bryce Dessner (The National), "Break" is a tantalising '80s pop surge with tropical flourishes and an undercurrent of David Byrne. Speaking on the track Stone said;
It's when you first meet somebody, and you have that connection, and your chemicals go crazy. It's about enjoying that first moment, without considering what comes next.
Accompanying the track is a brilliant video from LA-based, Australian director, Jessie Hill (credited on clips for Angus & Julia Stone, Halsey, Broods and Jarryd James). Hill's clip is "a club scene echoing a dystopian future (one in which we eerily now find ourselves) where the air is toxic and the dancers are styled in handmade, bejewelled face masks." Put simply, it's awesome.
