The Waifs – Beautiful You

This three piece band from Western Australia possess a pop-roots sound that can be likened to Angus & Julia Stone as well as Missy Higgins.

The Waifs’ seventh album, Beautiful You, offers 12 original tracks that provide soothing and sometimes intoxicating easy-listening. If you feel like sending yourself somewhere to reflect and ponder, Beautiful You can aid you down an imaginary country road.

It has been four years since the band have come together, and while the song-writing sessions may not have flowed so freely for the artists at first, the resulting production showcases their talent, chemistry and experience.

“It’s still great to look across at each other and know where we are going to go with the music,” says guitarist and vocalist Donna Simpson. “That has never changed, and we get along better now than we ever have.”
