Australian acoustic wordsmith Angus C-Crowley, an alt-folk poet with a head of soul and sweet harmony, has always seen music as a vehicle to share his poetry and a platform to explore his understanding of the world. Vocally and lyrically driven in the classic folk tradition coupled with the honest accompaniment of a guitar, ukulele or banjo, with each song he aims to strike the balance between aesthetics and substance and create a moment of pause with his audience.
Released last week, “October”, a soulful acoustic drift that will slowly soak its way into your ear, is the debut release for the singer. The song explores the fickle nature of sleep and dreams, from the effortless highway nod to the evening struggle to ‘lead’ your mind to rest, and the general malaise born from the inevitable stock-taking of life as the year comes to an end.
