Hayden Calnin + Tanya Batt: Atlas
Forgive me Australian friends. I have been away from our fair land for so long that I have lost touch with the Triple J Unearthed world.
As I was Skyping the lovely Cassie from elevenationmusic this evening, we discussed a number of exciting things (watch this space) as well as some of our latest musical discoveries. We bonded over a mutual appreciation of Dustin Tebbutt's latest single 'The Breach' (watch/listen here) as well as proclaiming our love for Triple J unearthed. But when she mentioned Hayden Calnin I drew a blank. A quick trip to the Js website and this was soon remedied.
Moments in to his tune 'For My Help' I made the same comparisons as Triple J's Dom Alessio; 'sounds like Matt Corby and Bon Iver'.
He has recently paired up with indie pop artist Tanya Batt to create the song 'Atlas'. With a voice that could be compared to Florence Welch or at times Laura Marling it's not a surprise how well her vocals complement his progressive loops.
