"...A new player in the Australian pantheon of great music, singer/songwriter Diana May Clark has put out a fabulous album called The Other Side of the Girl…It's kinda great! She’s crafted a really fantastic set of songs…it’s a mixture of Brazilian and other Latin American harmony & beats with good old Rock 'n Roll and Pop, and some great torch songs as well. Produced by Greg Arnold (of 90s band Things of Stone and Wood), along with her partner Doug de Vries on guitar, it's a fantastic production, and one I'll be sprinkling on radio over the year!" ABC Radio National 'Afternoons' with Michael Mackenzie, March 2015.
Purchase a hardcopy of The Other Side of the Girl and enjoy listening & reading the lyrics via Ash Oswalds's stunning booklet.
This sunny project of grown-up pop was inspired the winter Clark lost her voice and took solace in the piano. It combines the pop/rock/jazz influences she grew up with to the ‘musica brasileira’ that she still loves.
“From the get go, Diana May Clark’s ‘The Other Side of the Girl’ makes you wanna undulate. Not nod your head, not tap your toes nor click your fingers - you wanna move your hips. This is a disc designed to drive you to the dance floor. Later, you can lie on your back staring at the sky and let the sublime blend of voice and music take you slipping through time like sunshine through tree tops. You’ll be needing a rest after all that dance floor action.” Pat Monaghan (Basement Disks, Melbourne).
