Skipping Girl Vinegar – Chase The Sun
Check out this excellent video clip. Australian band Skipping Girl Vinegar sent a hobo monkey called Baker to the edge of space, in a low rent spaceship made from foam and gaffa tape. On the morning of Sat 27th November 2011, attached to a giant weather balloon, Baker and the onboard camera soared to 110,000 feet (4 times higher than Mt Everest) capturing the rolling image that is now part of this new film clip. Reaching speeds of over 200kmh and experiencing temperatures as low as -50 degrees, Baker carried an Mp3 player beaming out the new SGV single Chase the Sun and messages to the Universe from the people of Earth.
Skipping Girl Vinegar have played many of Australia’s premier festivals including packed shows at Splendour In The Grass, The Falls Festival, Woodford Folk Festival, Sunset Sounds, Pyramid Rock and Port Fairy Folk Festival. SGV have also supported the likes of The Lemonheads, Something for Kate, Shout Out Louds, Missy Higgins, Angus & Julia Stone.
