Having recently launched their critically-acclaimed sophomore album Keep Calm, Carry the Monkey, the next single and forthcoming Chase the Sun tour from Skipping Girl Vinegar heralds the start of summer – a song about winding the windows low, cranking your favourite track and running as far and as fast as you can from the city’s dust into the arms of your favourite coastal town. The track unravels the euphoria that comes as you chase the sun and see the ocean come into sight, the afterglow across the rock pools and the night swimming that ensues.
The dream to take the Hobo Monkey into Space comes as SGV prepare to launch their new single and one of the year’s summer anthems Chase the Sun. The events will be captured on film for the band’s next film clip and will be released as part of their east-coast tour in November. Known for their quirky folk pop shows with a stage filled with hard rubbish delights, Skipping Girl Vinegar take you under their wing and into the fold of their special live gigs. Tonight, Gold Coast Arts Centre.
