Aussie Folk Revolution!

Over the last few years there has been quite an English folk revolution. And I think its now happening in Australia. I have written about a few artists recently including Sarah Blasko, The Middle East and Boy and Bear who are all Australian based. I have been looking today and there are so so many more wonderful bands all coming out of Australia. All the bands are quite unique but like the London folk scene also have a lot in common. They all seem to have a very dreamy quality to them, a little like Bon Iver and also a Fanfarlo feel as a lot of them have lots of different instruments. I really really like all of it I find so I am now going to share some with you.

  1. I was going to also add Lawrence Arabia but turns out he’s from New Zealand. Close enough? Maybe not…

    Good research anyway!
