Bio

“Sweet Jean really do stand out from the crowd” ToneDeaf SWEET JEAN is Sime Nugent and Alice Keath. Their music ranges from stark, dark, and gothic, to lush, hazy and melodic. Since forming in late 2010, Sweet Jean have built a reputation for their evocative songwriting, razor-sharp harmonies, and stirring live performances. As the AU Review put it, Sweet Jean “can break your heart one minute and mend it the next. The duo has a natural ability to transport their audience to the heart of their songs.” Sweet Jean’s debut album Dear Departure will be released on July 4 2013. Co-produced with John Castle (Washington, Bamboos, The Drones, Vance Joy), the album is a collection of stories and reflections by Sime and Alice about life, longing, misadventure and mortality.

Great one. Love the deadness in that acoustic guitar. It sounds like sunlight peeking through the clouds when the verse disappears into the chorus 'ooohs'.

There's a really charming drive to this and Alice's voice is just too good to resist. Great stuff.
