Discovery: Christopher Coleman & The Great Escape

Christopher Coleman & The Great Escape are an Australian indie folk band with a haunting sound to their music – Amelia is their latest release.

By Jane Howkins

Amelia kicks off with a brass section, which was somewhat unexpected for this type of music. The tempo of the song is rather slow, but this only makes it sound more beautiful. The main chord sequence is gorgeous and works well with Christopher’s vocal delivery – listen to Amelia a few times and you’ll really start to appreciate how beautiful it is!
