Girls put sounds to the test

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - LIVE 'N' LOUD -

Moun­tain Girls will road-test new, orig­i­nal ma­te­rial for their up­com­ing al­bum when they play South­port Sharks this week­end. Banjo player and lead vo­cal­ist Chris Eaton says the band is bust­ing to show off its new sound. ‘‘We’re record­ing next month, so we want to play our new stuff live so we can pol­ish it up and gauge au­di­ence re­ac­tion,’’ he says. ‘‘We’ve been busy writ­ing be­tween fes­ti­vals and trav­el­ling, which has been tricky, and now we’re work­ing with our pro­ducer to hone the fi­nal tracks.’’ Round Moun­tain Girls ‘‘look and smell’’ like a bluegrass band but per­form their own style of rock on tra­di­tional in­stru­ments. They have graced the stages of the By­ron Bay Bluesfest, Wood­ford Folk Fes­ti­val, Gympie Muster, Mud Bulls and Mu­sic and the Caloun­dra and Tam­worth mu­sic fes­ti­vals. Round Moun­tain Girls won the Best Band Fea­tur­ing A Fid­dle Player hon­our at the 2012 Golden Fid­dle Awards.

Round Moun­tain Girls play South­port Sharks to­mor­row at 8.30pm. En­try is free.
