The beautifully commanding indie folk from Australian Born In October - "Free of Heart" from their "Running In Bare Feet" EP

Free of Heart by Australian indie/ folk duo Born In October is from their debut EP "Running In Bare Feet" just released yesterday on Feb 24th (on Bandcamp).

Born In October are bonafide city boy Matt Thomson (vocals, guitar) and bonafide country girl Rachel Webster (vocals, guitar, ukulele and tambourine) and, yes, they were both born in October.

Absolutely love their sound. The delicacies are heard throughout Free of Heart. Matt's vocal performance feels commanding in that Moody Blues sort of way and Rachel's voice has the natural lilt that feels so earnest. Both don't sound overly trained and I mean that in the best of ways. Their voices have character and you need that to tell their emotional stories.
