The Other Side of the Girl
Melbourne-based singer-songwriter Diana May Clark's debut original album 'The Other Side of the Girl' has a sunny Beatles meets Brazil sound that embraces pop/folk and psychedelic styles with a love of World music...a new mix that's unique and instantly charming.
"...A new player in the Australian pantheon of great music, singer/songwriter Diana May Clark has a fabulous album called The Other Side of the Girl… She’s crafted a fantastic set of songs…a mixture of Brazilian beats with Psychedelic Rock/Pop, and some great torch songs. Produced by Greg Arnold (Things of Stone and Wood), along with her partner Doug de Vries on guitar, it's an amazing production, and one I'll be sprinkling on radio over the year!" ABC Radio National 'Afternoons' Michael Mackenzie.
“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...” Pat Monaghan (Basement Disks, Melbourne).
"Many Facets of International Style for Aussie Songstress...With a strong sense of self, a voice that is as adaptable as it is powerful and a passion that exudes from her very soul, the album smacks of a writer and musician that is invested in the core of the music...Diana May Clark has unleashed a singularly undefinable album in terms of genre...this is an album that will appeal to the masses..." William Hancock
“An amazing sounding record, where each and every song is an event! Musically, lyrically and rhythmically brilliant and topped off with a voice of sheer delight to the ear.” Charles Jenkins

Sunny Daze - Mini EP
Vintage Pop mixed with World - Clark's well-established bossa nova credentials take a new direction with this original Beatles meets Brazil sound.
Sunny Daze is Diana's first single from The Other Side of the Girl album Produced by Greg Arnold, Flying the conflicting flags of breezy pop and film noir drama, the A and B sides of the release show the swing and the slap of the 60s.
Oozing psychedelica, the "A side" Sunny Daze marries swirling guitars, sliding vocals, cheeky entendres and a light hearted beat to bring back the burst of colour only the 60s can provide.
B-sideTango Noir quashes this feeling of euphoria, bringing in tense strings to support a Jefferson Airplane style muse on two lovers systematically falling apart.
