Be prepared to hear the name “Vance Joy” over and over and over again in 2014. Melbourne’s alternative one-man show has a way with gentle acoustics, with the ability to make a simple melody powerful. He just released his debut EP “God You Loves You When You’re Dancing” and it’s every bit delightful all the way through. I’ve had “Riptide” on constant repeat since I first heard it. Be on the lookout for him next year-I have a feeling he’s going to explode all over the festival scene.
