Fresh off the back of their main stage performance at the Tamworth Country Music Festival’s opening concert, sassy sibling trio Vixens of Fall return with their brand-new single Ain’t Goin’ Home.
The track opens with an in-your-face guitar riff, instantly bucking any preconceived notions that these three might be one trick ponies. “It has been said by some, that we are just “whimsy, soft and flowy”.. that is simply one side of the coin,” declare the Vixens. “This is a small part of the “wilder side”.. don’t threaten us with a good time!”
Written alongside their good friend and 2022 Toyota Star Maker winner, Max Jackson, the girls sought a song that reflected their larger-than-life personalities. “There are no “next door girl” vibes here,” they chuckle. “Although we love to sing beautiful ballads and songs from the heart, our stage show is quite different from our previous singles.”
It’s safe to say their efforts were successful – Ain’t Goin’ Home is three and a half minutes of foot stomping, barn burning country music. Partly due to the clever production work of Rod McCormack (Gina Jeffreys, Adam Harvey), the tune jumps out the speakers like a Shania Twain dance hit. “The amount of energy and new ideas that always seem to flood out when we are in the same room for hours at a time, is truly amazing.”
The siblings’ collaboration with McCormack has certainly been fruitful so far. Their previous single If You Don’t Want My Love peaked at #13 on the CountryTown Hot 50 airplay charts and debuted at #1 on the iTunes Australian Country chart. In fact, since the release of their single The Long Game in 2020, the trio have notched 5 consecutive Top 10 hits on the iTunes Australian Country Singles chart, three of which took out the number one spot.
The accompanying video clip for Ain’t Goin’ Home expertly captures the Vixens’ signature live energy. “The first scene was in Jazmyn’s living room where we ate chocolate, popcorn and crackers and dip and of course drank some wine. The second scene found us at Method Art Collective; a bar with a tattoo parlour. A perfect place for us! Drinks and tattoos – What more could we want!” With the gifted Jazmyn Produces behind the lens, the clip makes an excellent, tongue-in-cheek companion to this sizzling track. “It was the perfect combination of relaxing in our pjs, but also having a crazy night out.”
2022 continues to be a busy year for the Queensland natives. As well as embarking on a string of headline shows across the sunshine state, the sisters will open for Daryl Braithwaite at the Mount Isa Street Festival and will appear at the fan favourite, Gympie Music Muster, in August.
After a run of wildly successful singles, Vixens of Fall have truly made an impression on Australian country music. Their mentor – country music queen, Gina Jeffreys says “the girls are an exciting new act to hit the country music scene like nothing we’ve ever seen before! They are energetic, fun loving gorgeous humans with music that reflects who they really are.” Ain’t Goin’ Home is certainly a statement that these girls have a lot to offer. Simply bursting with talent and sass, Vixens of Fall are here to shake up country music and they ain’t goin’ anywhere.
