Have You Heard: The Beautiful Girls

Hailing from Australia, the trio of The Beautiful Girls have perfected their blend of roots, rock, and reggae.

Founded in 2001, the group quickly gained notoriety in Australia with the release of Morning Sun EP and Goodtimes EP as well as their debut album Learn Yourself. These first three releases would be heavily influenced by folk and roots music and their success would allow them to extensively tour Australia enlarging their rapidly growing fan base.

In 2005 they released their second full length album, We’re Already Gone, though, they were only just arriving to the worldwide music scene. The album showcased their foray into electric as they left their acoustic setup behind and found an edgier darker sound heavily influenced by reggae and rock.

Their following album, Ziggurats, would feature the same heavier sound and put them on the map in the U.S. with other reggae rock acts such as Slightly Stoopid, Pepper, and The Expendables. The success of Ziggurats would allow them to extensively tour the U.S., including an appearance at the Rothbury Music Festival in July 2008.

Their most recent release, 2010’s Spooks, is arguably their most reggae influenced album to date with its driving basslines, echoing drums, and angelic horns.

As their sound continues to grow and mature I firmly believe it is only a matter of time before they are continually touring world wide with their upbeat music and energetic live show.
