The spirited wings of Julia Stone's music have carried her to reside in foreign lands, to delight crowds of many thousands and to graciously receive the highest acclaims in her homeland.
From the very start, her keen senses have always been trained on the hidden voices of the walls and windows. In her second solo collection, Julia's voice dances between hopeful and weary, defeated and desperately alive.
The centerpiece and title track of the record - 'By The Horns' - describes the duplicitous power of male aggression and deceit; Julia assumes the guise of a commanding chanteuse leading her crack nightclub band and declares: 'I've learned my lesson, no one is to blame, except for you' as she repeatedly asserts 'I believe in love' amidst her clinical dissection of a callous lover's transgression. Julia gently advises: ‘Everyone’s a little lost on how to love well... the beautiful thing is that everyone keeps going back for more. Our hearts naturally want to be open and full of love. I always come back to wanting to love, even when I get hurt.’
