Nettwerk Records releases "Broken Brights," the exceptional solo effort from Angus Stone, perhaps better known as half of the acclaimed sibling duo, Angus & Julia Stone, and the voice behind the pair's stand-out track 'Big Jet Plane,' which has more than 11 million YouTube views.
"Broken Brights" is a welcomed surprise for many of Angus’ fans. Stone challenges himself as both a musician and performer by drawing upon a variety of unexpected sources – instrumentation, vocal stylings, genres – to create his song, “to let the conversation of the energy unfold into a creation,” says Stone.
"Broken Brights" is captured memories and imaginings from his pilgrimage around the planet paired with handclapping, whistling, speedily plucked banjo strings, somber trumpet solos, acoustic guitars, screaming electric guitars and good old-fashioned howling. Produced by Angus, "Broken Brights" is proof that he can deftly shift between genres without compromising his signature sound.
Starting September 11th, Angus takes to the road to share the album across North America. The month-long headline tour kicks off in Los Angeles at the famed Troubadour music venue and wraps in Philadelphia, PA on September 30. This is the first time Angus has toured North America without his co-conspirator and sister, Julia Stone.
