EP – One Chance – Skipping Girl Vinegar

Posted by admin on November 30th, 2007

I’m constantly on the lookout for new music and always particularly interested in new music from around the world, specifically music that fits the Indie Launchpad ethos. It was therefore exciting to get this EP in from Australia, from a band I’ve certainly not heard anywhere else… so far.

The EP opens with the title track and has a really interesting flavour to it. There’s a great driving beat, but this is underpinned by the fairly uncommon, banjo or banjo sounding instrument. It’s a sound I’ve heard before, but not in a long while and really has that infectious feel to it. The second track on this 3 track EP is “Cold Come The Nights”, which maybe is a bit too mellow for my liking. Actually mellow isn’t the word for it, it’s more a horizontal. It’s so laidback it’s bordering on the brink of life, kind of track. The final track, a reworking is a bizarre little, soundscape of the original track or so the title “One Chance Soundscape” indicates.

Conclusion : With 50% hit rate on my radar, this could be considered an EP a bit on the fence. However it’s the opening track that is more the A side of this, virtual two track single. Certainly an interesting sound and one that I’m sure will flourish on a full length album.
