The Beautiful Girls
New Single – My Mind Is An Echo Chamber
Australian Summer Tour
With special guests The Chemist
'My Mind is an Echo Chamber' was a song title before it was a song. The music comes from a love of dancehall and dub... punk rock and a sense of longing... distorted guitars and analog synths…the good kind…the kind with the broken faders. It’s King Tubby and Barrington Levy booming from a ghetto blaster set up on the side of an empty pool. It’s Scratch Perry lacing up his chucks and eating a burrito con pollo with lyrics from a Morrissey song swimming in his brain. Tape echoes, blue horns and skittering drums.
'My Mind is an Echo Chamber' is the third single off The Beautiful Girls fourth record Spooks. Following in the footsteps of its high rotation predecessors ‘Don’t Wait’ and ‘10:10’. The single is bundled with a live version that was recorded at their recent sold-out hometown show at Sydney’s Enmore Theatre, and will be available digitally and as a limited release physical single through Waterfront Records on Oct 27th 2010. New Album ‘Spooks’ in store now

“You can almost feel the heat haze coming off the summery dub of Spooks, the fourth album from Sydney trio The Beautiful Girls. This release, and their third album, 2007's Ziggurats, were punctuated by last year's solo album and tour by singer-songwriter Mat McHugh. But he's returned with solid intent, his roots-rock foundations - and it must be said, talent for a poppy hook - influenced by the finer aspects of reggae, in dancehall and rocksteady."

Time to hit the Pacific Highway!
Summer has become synonymous with The Beautiful Girls, and the hotter months of 2010/ 2011 will be no different. It’s their favourite season and best time to hit the road and reconnect with the home turf.
Surf, skate, surf, by day. Music, show, party by night. Never straying far from waves, caravans, bbq’s, bikinis, sweltering heat, cold beers, long drives, festival crowds, beach cricket, and our family and friends. Everything that reminds them they are at home in Australia. Living the dream!
