The Beautiful Girls New Single and Tour Announcement

Written by Toby Smith on October 22, 2009

After 7 years on the road… in hotels, in foreign mud, strewn packets of guitar strings, bags full of hotel keys, flight stubs and stickers on gear cases that map a zig-zag of touring across just about every continent on the globe, a motorcycle accident saw some cheap Los-Angeles-Hotel down time for Mat McHugh. That period saw him strip his songs down, take some time sitting still, and record his first solo album. A soulful unwinding, and a timely look back to the early TBG.

With just an acoustic guitar and a band of transient ruffians borrowed from Sydney’s jazz scene, he took to stages around the country and played his songs, up close and personal. It was a transitional period, a chance to linger in the rear-view mirror for a while, before looking up to see what lies ahead; not the beginning or ending of anything. But shoveling the way for a clear vision for The Beautiful Girls next sonic step. And so, after a brief, yet warranted break…….
the boys are back.

The Beautiful Girls, kicked started with a full-throttle, after a sold out tour of Brazil and huge shows at this year’s Splendour In The Grass and Sounds Of Spring festivals, they have returned to the studio to lay down tracks for their next LP, due in store early 2010. With the electric plugged back in, the band is ready to deliver on the promises made on We?re Already Gone and Ziggurats. “With the next album I want to be able to bring the whole thing together” Mat explains “to make sense of the music on all the previous albums.”

The first single off the album is ‘Don’t Wait’, recorded, mixed and produced by Mat McHugh and Ian Pritchett at Oceanic (Jim Moginie’s studio), Mat’s Basement and Ian’s garage. ‘Don’t Wait’ is just a song about going out, finding a girl and dancing with her. Living life and having a good time…with everybody…together.

It’s just a pop song.

Don’t Wait will be available as a free download from,, on November 9th, 2009
