In brief, Valley Floor features Clay MacDonald from The Beautiful Girls/Angus and Julia Stone, alongside Dan Briffa and Jesse Bailey from well-known Queensland psychedelic-rock band Rogerthat, and is at the forefront of a newly emerging genre called ‘Jellyfish Roll’.

The three-piece’s sound is surf-punk-blues-psych-stomp and has fast gathered a loyal following among coastal kids who like a dance-floor rummage, while still engaging an older generation who remember classic Australian acts such as the Easy Beats and (early) Hoodoo Gurus – among others.

Valley Floor are a return to the 60s stomp music that, ironically, they only learnt about as they grew up in the 80s. Having bumped into each other many times touring the club and festival circuits of Australia, Europe and North America – Clay with The Beautiful Girls and later Angus and Julia, Jesse and Dan with Rogerthat – the fellas quickly became friends and it was only a matter of time before they collaborated musically. As they accidentally all ended up on the Gold Coast in 2011 that time arrived. And now they are Valley Floor.
