“I’m gonna have a Rolls Royce in tangerine, I’m gonna do everything you’ve never seen”
Head boppin’, booty shaking & full of smiles, Good Call Live can officially unveil Queensland’s LAURA MAC, alongside a premiere of their shining debut single! The band has burst into the limelight and into our hearts with their inaugural track Garage Full of Dreams.
Speaking about the song, charismatic and energetic front-woman Laura Maclachlan has revealed how Garage Full of Dreams is a rollercoaster dive into her kooky perspective on life, sweet rides and trying to hit your dreams!
“You know how some people have to work really hard for things that other people have given to them for free? That’s kind of what this song is about. That and cool cars! I sing about all these cool cars when in reality I drive the world’s most beat up Toyota Camry. When I got the car it was rancid and had 5000 cockroaches in it. It’s clean now but has subsequently been nicknamed ‘The Roach.’”
Written in the glorious Sunshine Coast Hinterlands inside a glowing red party bus, it was taken to Lush Studios in Brisbane, with expertise that has guided The Butterfly Effect, Katie Noonan & Semantics steering the vibrant and bouncy tune that you hear today. “We write all of our music in our big red party bus. I throw in the occasional bass line but Zac writes all the music and then I put vocals down over the top. The initial recording is usually just me scat singing over the track to get the melody right and then writing the words and filling in the gaps as we’re recording the demo.” says Laura.
Instrumentation by Ian Peres (Wolfmother) & Luke Williams (Dead Letter Circus) provides an urgent drive throughout, with Laura’s powerful voice cutting through via a sharp wit and bite.
A debut EP is just around the corner and will undoubtedly continue the band’s rapid trajectory from party bus to sold-out shows in no time.
