Having stormed their way through town earlier this year as part of a national tour in support of the highly acclaimed We’re Already Gone, The Beautiful Girls became an overnight success – all over again. While that album might have served as an introduction to this gritty Australian ensemble for most American fans, the Sydneysiders have been carving out their distinctive musical niche for some time now. And an insight into the intricacy of their handiwork has recently surfaced in the form of a compilation album titled Water. Drawn from a series of recordings released prior to We’re Already Gone, Water offers a chronological exploration of the band’s dynamic back catalogue. From “Periscopes,” the opening song on their recorded debut Morning Sun, to the gorgeous “I Need To Give This Broken Heart Away” from Weight Of The World, Water encompasses five previously released recordings. But this offering is much more than a musical catalogue. It is both an enchanting insight into a mounting musical force here in the States and an insight into why this band has been blowing away critics in their homeland for so long.
