The stem of the song was created a little while ago. At the time, Vance Joy set it aside, but later rediscovered it during a creative burst of song writing, adding in a riff on a ukulele and a chorus. If you look beneath its surface, you will see that Riptide is not necessarily about one topic, but rather a joyous mish mash of anything and everything.
For Vance Joy, Riptide is the track that first got people buzzing. He quickly developed a loyal fan base after making it available for download online.
The year so far has been one of firsts for Vance Joy; one of achievement and personal milestones met. A record deal, support slots for renowned local and international artists (ie Julia Stone and Of Monsters and Men) and his first trip to SXSW. After the release of God Loves You When You’re Dancing, he will headline his first tour with a full band.
All in all, 2013 is shaping up to be a wonderful year for this talented artist. Riptide is the next step in the journey.
