Based between Sydney and Nundle NSW, Born in October are indie/folk lovers Rachel Webster (vocals, guitar, ukulele & tambourine) & Matt Thomson (vocals, guitar).
The pair’s love of indie/folk has had beautiful and beguiling results, as evidenced their recently released debut EP, Running in Bare Feet. The latest taste of their deliciously irresistible indie-folkish jangle is ‘No Friend of Mine’ – whisking us far, far away, over mountain streams and spacious valleys. Perfectly intertwined and emotive harmonies, mingle graciously with wistful finger picking and splashes of delicate rhythms, and all coated in an alluring veneer of classic ‘60s/’70s pop melodies. This beautiful and meticulously pieced together popcraft is brushed aside, and complimented, by some fleeting moments of mild but delightfully lush psych-sonics and guitar twangs coming to the fore. An utterly divine creation of rather splendid allure.
Tune in to ‘No Friend of Mine’ below and while you’re at it, why not check out the debut EP, Running in Bare Feet over here?
