Let Vance Joy's new 'Riptide' video wash you away: EXCLUSIVE

Posted on

Vance Joy

Need some new blood in your folked-up summer playlist? Meet Vance Joy.

After putting in his time on the Melbourne open-mic circuit, the Australian singer-songwriter landed gigs opening for the likes of Of Monsters and Men and Ben Howard, and his debut EP God Loves You When You’re Dancing is slated for a Stateside release Sept. 3.

The album’s lead single,”Riptide,” is already rising on the Aussie charts, and the original, excellently weird clip already has more than half a million pageviews on YouTube– but you can watch the song’s new, more intimate acoustic video exclusively here:
