Established Melbourne-based Brazilian song interpreter Diana May Clark launches her debut original album ‘The Other Side of the Girl’ at what is sure to be an amazing and hypnotising album launch party at Ding Dong Lounge on Sunday 30th November. 

The much anticipated launch was previewed with two singles (‘Sunny Daze’ and ‘Blueprint’) as well as B-Sides and clips over the past 18 months. 

Diana established her interpretive credentials by way of two award winning recordings with Guitarist (now husband) Doug de Vries; her original band “The Sunny Set’ embraces pop and psychedelic styles with her love of Brazilian music into a new mix that is unique and instantly charming.
 
“From the get go, Diana May Clark & The Sunny Set’s music makes you wanna undulate. Not nod your head, not tap your toes nor click your fingers – you wanna move your hips… 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)
 
Refreshingly genuine, brimming with cool guitar riffs, film-noir ripe vocals and kicking grooves; 
Diana May Clark and the Sunny  Set are:
DMC – voice & keys
Doug de Vries – electric & acoustic guitars
Al Kerr – Drums, percussion & backing vocals

 

Maddie Weybury – Bass & backing vocals
(with special guests).
 

You can expect psychedelic melodies peppered with occasional Portuguese lyrics, film clips, and a rotating stage of talented musicians and dancers – don’t be afraid to dress with a 60s twist (you know you wanna!) and be ready to fall in love with Diana’s new sound!
