Angus & Julia Stone - Life Is Strange
Angus and Julia Stone hadn’t planned to make another record — for a while, at least. But life had other machinations in mind, as it always has with Angus and Julia. The pair were famously brought back together by the legendary Rick Rubin and now again, were presented with an impossible-to-ignore opportunity, to reconsider themselves as artists in a new way — as composers, scoring for an award-winning video game.
And so came Life Is Strange, Angus and Julia Stone’s unexpected, unguarded, unforgettable fifth album. The duo were commissioned by Dontnod Entertainment to sound-track 2021’s ‘True Colours’ edition of the game, a soundtrack record that is one of the pair’s most immediate, most beautifully-rendered sets yet. The album won the ARIA (AUS Grammy) in 2021 for Best Original Soundtrack.
The game, like the music, explores the richness and complexity of love between siblings, families, and communities. It’s a theme Angus & Julia have themselves never given up working through: “There's always going to be this common thread that runs through all our songs, which is that at the bottom of everything is love,” says Angus. “It always comes back to love, and things coming from within your heart. When all else fails, love will be the thing that conquers.”
