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 fount of ‘musica brasileira’ that she still loves. Produced through a 60s Pure Pop filter by Greg Arnold (Things of Stone and Wood), this is an album of summer anthems that speak of unity, the wheel of life, family, travel and having an escape plan.
“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).
