Video Time: Santa Monica Dream

Santa Monica Dream is a song off Angus and Julia Stone's sophomore album “Down The Way."

“Down The Way” marks their debut as producers, taking full control of their sound without losing the spirit of what made the first record so special. There has been a subtle shift of gear, represented by a growing confidence in their abilities as artists and the music follows suit as it flows easily through sparse and rich textured arrangements without losing any of its etherealness and charm.

Once again the brother and sister duo share the song writing duties on “Down The Way”, their individual styles compliment each other and juxtapose beautifully as they express their alternate views of lost love and yearning. This is shown especially well in the epic and rich tapestry of “Hold On” and the albums first single “And The Boys” which was co-produced by Brad Albetta (Martha Wainwright).

The Stone's found a bunch of old footage in their grandparents cupboard and had a friend edit some of the footage together to Santa Monica Dream.
