I've been listening to Agnes Kain for over a year now, and still I forgot to mention them here. Almost unforgivable, since the duo creates some very nice poppy folk songs.
Agnes Kain (Chanelle Afford and Stefan Simunic) have been creating and playing music together for the past couple of years. Having grown up on the same street in a small town on the outskirts of Sydney, there is an intimacy and comfort to their music that comes from the closeness of being long time friends. They released their debut album "Keep walking or I’ll kill you", which despite the wicked title was born of love back in 2007. Both self-taught musicians, Stefan and Chanelle played most of the instruments on the album, including guitar, piano, mandolin, bass, melodica, glockenspiel, and percussion. Their friends, Ben Ellingworth (drums) and Anne Samuels (viola) also lent their talents on several songs.
