Pierce Brothers Atlas ShouldersThey started out as buskers in Melbourne. Now the Pierce Brothers – twins Jack and Pat – are a global act, and deservedly so.

Their debut album, Atlas Shoulders, is a cruisy collection of folk-pop celebrating peaceful, easy feelings. Back End Roads sounds like an instant summer smash, depicting holiday flings and getting away from it all. “Gotta get away from the city with its mass confusion,” the brothers sing; “Everyone’s addicted to the grand illusion.”

Simple stories, beautifully told, these songs will provide the soundtrack to many endless summers. File next to Busby Marou, Xavier Rudd and John Butler.

Atlas Shoulders is out October 26 via Warner.
