Australia is producing some fine musicians right now and this guy could just be the next.
His name’s Jimmy Hanson and he comes from Melbourne, Australia of course. He’s only released one song, ‘Loose Blonde Haired Girl’ which you can hear below but he’s definitely stealing our heart already. In a world which is currently riddled with wannabe singer song writers and bland Jake Bugg’s, a breath of fresh air has been blown towards us from the shore lines of Australia. His debut track has got hints of early Kings of Leon with its occasional and simple yet rigid guitar hook. The vocals, well, they could be likened to that of Swim Deep, as well as the catchy pop surfer vibes which also point all fingers towards another singer songwriter, Hibou. His track is available for download on soundcloud, so grab it quick before the rest of the world realises his potential.
