Angus & Julia Stone have released an intoxicating new video for stand-out track “Nothing Else” from their latest album Snow. The video features two versions of Julia Stone: the buttoned up, responsible businesswoman and the free-spirited, creative artist. Julia explains, “It’s about self acceptance and self love. I wanted to make a video that shows an aspect of the relationship we have with ourselves. The parts we love, the parts that we find irritating or unlovable. The relationship in the video begins with judgment and frustration. By the end of the video, there is an acceptance from both versions…an ease with the different elements, the contradictions of who we are.”
The acclaimed duo has just performed to over 50,000 fans on their recent 2018 Australian tour, playing Sold Out shows nationally, their largest local tour to date.
Next stop on their global touring schedule is the UK and Europe starting this Saturday, including a headline show at London’s prestigious Royal Albert Hall this Sunday night. They continue throughout June and July playing some of Europe’s biggest festivals as well as headline dates before heading home for Byron Bay’s Splendour In The Grass for a mainstage slot on the night of Friday July 20.

The first notes of new album Snow are instantly transporting, beginning the next enchanting journey with the brother-sister duo. The album is yet another confidant advance on a story which now accounts for over half a million album sales in Australia alone and features triple j Hottest 100 #3, Platinum single Chateau. The Sydney-born siblings produced and largely engineered it themselves, in Angus’s cottage studio, Belafonté, in the Byron Bay hinterland.
Since the duo began performing together in 2006, their story has unfolded with an almost magical magnetism that has galvanised the world. Their albums have amassed multi-platinum sales and numerous ARIA and APRA awards at home, and won a fanbase of millions over spiralling tours of the UK, Europe and North America. The band have each month over 5 million listeners who tune in, to stream their music from all over the world.
