Australian indie force of nature Skipping Girl Vinegar has teamed up with EARMILK to exclusively premiere their new video for "Dance Again" today! "Dance Again" is the lead single from their new album The Great Wave, which officially dropped on April 3rd and was produced by Brad Jones (Josh Rouse, Justin Townes Earle), who flew out to Australia specifically to work with the band after hearing the album demos.

A sonic explosion of color, lead single "Dance Again" combines a driving organic rhythm section and synths together with gang-chanted lyrics "take me right back I wanna do it over", to bring back the feeling of that seemingly endless summer between the end of high school and wherever life's great wave took us afterwards. Shot from 14,000 ft, the clip features a couple of mysterious golden skydivers in custom-made jumpsuits, freefalling through the clouds above the very same Victorian coastline that the album was written and recorded.
Skipping Girl Vinegar are one of Australia's most talked about bands, made up of Chris Helm (Drums, BV's, Melodica), Kelly Lane (Violin, BV's, Percussion, Keyboards), Mark Lang (Vocals, Guitar, Banjo, Soundscape Textures), Sare Lang (Bass, BV's, Percussion), and Amanthi Lynch (Piano, Keyboards, BV's, Percussion). The band recently launched their anticipated third album The Great Wave from the main stage of one of Australia's largest most iconic festivals, Byron Bay Bluesfest.
Reflecting on the events that led up to The Great Wave, singer/songwriter Mark Lang explains, "The last two years have seen us travel from the heights of radio and agents opening up for the band in the US, to the crashing heartbreak of my wife being diagnosed with ovarian cancer. We put the record and everything else on hold, went to ground and focused all our love and energy onto her, and thankfully - we are one of the fortunate ones. What I valued and prioritized previously had now shifted, affecting the very core of how I wanted to communicate through music"
Celebrated songwriters, the band have released two critically acclaimed albums to date; Sift the Noise and Keep Calm, Carry the Monkey that made many 'Album of the Year' lists, receiving extensive radio play on U.S. college radio, Australian national youth broadcaster Triple J, ABC and community radio nationwide, as well as thrilling audiences at many of Australia's premiere festivals including Splendour In The Grass, Falls, Woodford and more.
No strangers to the U.S. music scene, Skipping Girl Vinegar charted on the U.S. CMJ charts with their Chase The Sun EP and were invited to play CMJ Music Marathon in 2012 alongside showcases in Los Angeles & Nashville. The subsequent U.S. tour saw them climb the CMJ charts, featuring seven weeks inside the Top 100 with numerous #1 and #2 positions across the U.S. including 46 Top 10s.
