Aussie singer-songwriter Vance Joy broke through a few years back with the sunny “Riptide” from his debut album Dream Your Life Away. Much of his music is somewhat more somber. But “Lay It On Me” builds to an equally uplifting hook. No details yet on his sophomore album, but it’s on the way.

Vance Joy will play October 23 at Brooklyn Steel with fellow Aussie singer-songwriter Amy Shark.
