It doesn’t get any higher than chill vibes, good tunes and Aussies.

This submit comes from our Australia contributor, !

On the purpose furthest east of the Australian mainland sits the bohemian coastal city of Byron Bay. One of the primary issues individuals discover about this city is the sheer quantity of extremely lovely individuals, in all places. Radiant ladies with intense female power appear to drift simply above the bottom once they stroll, whereas boys with lengthy golden locks and tanned naked ft pile retro surfboards into their classic station wagons which conveniently double as cellular houses.

There’s actually no different place fairly just like the Bay — its distinctive, virtually tangible vibration within the air has a means of convincing even probably the most cynical metropolis slicker to go barefoot via its lengthy balmy days, countless seashores, dependable surf breaks and droves of bohemians in quest of unity who flock there from all corners of the globe. The city is a stupendous instance of what it means to be really pleased and free. The second you edge your means into city by way of the luxurious inexperienced freeway there’s an power so heavy you’ll be able to virtually attain out and contact it. The Bay summons those that enter to let down their hair (and perhaps add a couple of flowers, too).  Of the Bay’s intensely redeeming belongings, it’s the male musicians who fill the streets with music that maybe depart the longest impression properly after you allow. Dubbed The Boys of Byron Bay, listed here are 4 of Byron’s extremely gifted exports.

The Babe Rainbow

The Babe Rainbow

Flamboyant, playful, and profoundly poetic, The Babe Rainbow boys might remind you of Mick Jagger’s roc kstar antics and Jim Morrison’s melodious wild thoughts. The band first shaped in 2013 when the three associates — Angus Darling, Kool Breeze and Dr. Elliot Love-Wisdom — have been dwelling collectively in a bookshop-come-kaleidoscopic-artist-loft above the city financial institution within the Byron hinterland. Their sound is undeniably catchy, upbeat and drenched in hazy summery vibes, and summarized by their debut single, ‘Love Forever’. I met Angus in highschool and we ended up at college collectively, all the time skipping class in favour of street journeys to the seashore in summer time, laying underneath the jacaranda tress in spring or sitting within the quad creating characters and alter egos for ourselves whereas scraping collectively cash to go halves in packets of cigarettes — he has all the time been vibrant and bigger than life. That adventurous spirit has served him nicely. He now interprets the internal workings of his extremely imaginative thoughts into poetry and music which sends you floating upstream in a tranquil mixture of echoey vocal harmonies, crisp beats and the band’s trademark 70s psychedelic guitar melodies.

Luke Morris

Luke Morris

I’ve by no means met anybody as mushy, humble and delicate as Luke. With lengthy golden hair and piercing ice-blue eyes, his music is a pure extension of his calming nature. Luke performed our Free People Australia summer time celebration in Byron a number of months again, establishing with simply an amp, a mic and his trusty Persian rug. At first, his music was a welcome accompaniment to the moments once we sat and relaxed across the deck as we frolicked and digested our late lunch however, the second Luke arrived on the first refrain of Chris Isaak’s ‘Wicked Games,’ everybody fell immediately silent. And that’s what his music does. It takes you on a pleasing and regular journey till one specific melody or key change sends a shiver up your backbone and instantly stops you in your tracks. His gentle voice transcends tearjerkers so private that you simply really feel like an emotional trespasser each time you pay attention. He recorded his unbiased album ‘Sugarcane Road’ in associates’ dwelling rooms and farm homes and regularly gigs round Byron the place, in the event you’re fortunate sufficient to observe him reside, you may hear a number of of his backbone-tingling covers.

Ziggy Alberts

Ziggy Alberts

I first got here throughout Ziggy one balmy afternoon within the streets of Byron. Hearing his throaty, shaky, powerfully delicate voice develop stronger as walked towards the sound. Appearing simply across the nook there he was. Shirtless and glowing within the scorching afternoon solar, seated on a stool plucking and tapping percussively on his guitar whereas stomping his foot on a kick drum in his distinctive one-man-band fashion (greatest exemplified in his music Land & Sea). You get the fast impression there’s one thing totally different about him. He’s academically inclined, musically adept and unfailingly well mannered, a grand instance of unconventional house-education and an excellent tight household. Teaching himself guitar by way of YouTube, he performs solely by ear, admitting he doesn’t know the names of the angelic chords he strums, which is why this coastal people songwriter, free surfer and environmental fanatic has gained the hearts and minds of individuals actually everywhere in the world. But whenever you get to know Ziggy you quickly work out that he’s a simply humble man who lives in his van, walks round city barefoot together with his reusable and appears to need solely two issues: for the world to be a greater place and for everybody to be comfortable.
