by Skipping Girl Vinegar
Album: The Great Wave (due 3 April 2015)
The quick beats and urgent need to move immediately made me question who this was when I first heard the words about school bells and best of friends. When I saw the name, I was all like "wow, these guys!" because Skipping Girl Vinegar are one of those bands that have been around forever. Well, I guess ten years isn’t forever unless you’re ten years old, but alas, I’m not, so let’s just say they’ve been playing their sweet pop sounds for a little while. They’re going to release their third album, The Great Wave, on April 3 at the Byron Bay Bluesfest, which boasts a pretty impressive line-up this year, SGV included. This, their latest track, is super cute, all energy and vibe from the very beginning with those super fast keyboard sounds making me wanna dance and spin in circles under a big blue sky like I’m ten years old again. Which is funny, considering the song is all reminiscing on great times that have passed and dancing again and living it all over. It's all very fun, so while there's a few days of warmth left in this year, I've got time for some reminiscing, dancing and spinning in the sun yet.
