“It’s practically impossible not to fall just a little bit in love with both the singer and her beautifully fragile music.” -- Q Magazine (UK)
Julia Stone’s new solo effort, By The Horns, is officially in stores this week, and to celebrate, the Aussie chanteuse has released a new video for the album’s title track. In the video, which was directed by Jessie Hill and filmed deep in the jungles of tropical Asia, Julia takes the viewer on a gondola ride through mist-shrouded lakes, playing the role of a scorned goddess who has turned her unfaithful ex-lover into a goblin of the underworld, but she ends up the victim of her own creation. The video recently premièred on the KCRW Music Blog. Watch it above.
By The Horns was produced by Thomas Bartlett and Patrick Dillett, whose combined work includes credits on records by Antony & The Johnsons, David Byrne, The National, and Mary J Blige. The album is comprised of nine original tracks and a cover of The National’s “Bloodbuzz Ohio.” (Listen to it here: http://bit.ly/KYgX4d.)
Critics from around the globe are praising By The Horns:
“ A Triumph” – Harper’s Bazaar (Australia)
“…haunting folk ballads.” – MTV Iggy
"Darker, wiser, and more personally reflective...’By the Horns’ strikes a nice balance between standard, confessional singer/songwriter fare and radio-ready alt-pop."—All Music
“…a work of true depth and emotion.” -- Clash Magazine (UK)
"The sister has branched off from the brother and is learning to fly on this exceptional solo release." -- LA Music Blog
"Her lovely, airy voice is more forceful on this record, and we like it." – The Owl Mag
"’By The Horns’ will give you goosebumps.” -- triple j magazine (Australia)
“…a firm example of Stone’s mass appeal and ability to stand alone as solo artist.”
-- The Line Of Best Fit (UK)
Leading up to the album’s release, Julia has been making special appearances to sold-out crowds from London to Paris to Berlin to Amsterdam. She’ll play to a sold-out crowd in Los Angeles this Friday, June 1 at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery, and then will make her final June appearance in Sydney on June 13 (also sold-out). A North American tour is in the works for the fall; stay tuned for details.
