Mc­coun­try gals in town

McC­ly­monts – Aus­tralian coun­try mu­sic trio made up of sis­ters Brooke, Sa­man­tha and Mol­lie McC­ly­mont – take their song­writ­ing skills to an­other level on their lat­est al­bum, Two Worlds Col­lide. Mol­lie says the trio wanted to cre­ate a per­sonal record that fans could re­late to. ‘‘We didn’t feel it needed to be pop or coun­try or mod­ern or rock, it’s a mix­ture of it all,’’ she says. ‘‘We de­cided we needed to go deeper – we wanted our fans to get to know us a lit­tle bet­ter.’’ Two Worlds Col­lide is the re­sult of song­writ­ing ses­sions in Nashville while the band toured the US for six months last year. The McC­ly­monts worked with three mas­ter pro­duc­ers to bring it to life and Sam says their time with Peter Asher, in Los Angeles, was an amaz­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. ‘‘Peter pro­duced three songs for us. Then we went to Nashville to record with Dierks Bent­ley’s pro­ducer, Luke Wooten, who did six tracks with us,’’ she says. ‘‘We were lucky again to have Tay­lor Swift’s pro­ducer, Nathan Chap­man, work with us on two tracks be­fore he started work­ing with Tay­lor on her next al­bum. The whole record­ing process for the al­bum went so smoothly.’’While the sis­ters have been play­ing mu­sic to­gether as The McC­ly­monts for more than six years, Mol­lie says their growth as a band trans­lates through their en­er­getic live shows. ‘‘Our live show is very high­en­ergy,’’ she says. ‘‘There are lots of sur­prises in store on this tour – it’s go­ing to be a lot of fun.’’

The McC­ly­monts play Twin Towns to­mor­row at 8.30pm. Tick­ets are $42.
