“Dream Your Life Away” with Vance Joy’s New Album


Earlier this month Vance Joy dropped his second album Dream Your Life Away with thirteen new tracks. If you’ve heard of this Australian artist before you’re probably familiar with his top hit “Riptide”, which was my go-to song during my semester abroad this past spring. According to Billboard “Riptide” has been played more than 50 million times on Spotify alone, which is pretty cool if you ask me. However the coolest part, in my opinion, is that Vance Joy managed to escape the infamous ‘one hit wonder’ trap. His newest album is full of new catchy tunes. From the more upbeat track “Mess is Mine”—which is similar in many ways to “Riptide”—to “Georgia” which is a little slower but my personal favorite. Vance Joy is one of those artists that you just can’t dislike.  His mellow voice and the instruments he uses in the background are amazingly easy to listen too and enjoy weather you’re looking for slow, moody music or upbeat, toe-tapping sounds. So here’s a quick little Vance playlist with a selection of my favorite of his songs so you can hear it for yourself!
