Skipping Girl Vinegar are one of Melbourne’s up and coming bands, known for their indie pop sound and captivating live show.
Having recently launched their critically-acclaimed sophomore album ‘Keep Calm, Carry the Monkey’, the next single and forthcoming ‘Chase the Sun’ tour heralds the start of summer – a song about winding the windows low, cranking your favorite track and running as far and as fast as you can from the city’s dust into the arms of your favorite coastal town. The track unravels the euphoria that comes as you chase the sun and see the ocean come into sight, the afterglow across the rock pools and the night swimming that ensues.
