Homegrown and much loved country duo, sisters Sophie and Celeste Clabburn, the Sunny Cowgirls, have announced their upcoming EP, Happy Days, with release of the lead track, Raining Pineapples. The much-anticipated acoustic EP features hits, new music, and a cover of Lee Kernaghan’s Hat Town.
The nine-time Golden Guitar nominated Sunny Cowgirls are known for singing about their own experiences living and working in rural and regional Australia, capturing the spirit of the busy and bustling energy of life on the land. Raining Pineapples celebrates those special moments in which a long-awaited fall of rain settles the dust and breathes new life into paddock and pasture. With it’s intoxicating mandolin and fiddle, it’s a classic sunny tune about a good old rainy day.
To celebrate 15 years on the road and eight studio albums under their belt, the sisters started the year by setting up shop in the historic Gunnible homestead outside Gunnedah. They recorded the EP including two new songs with great mate, and sought-after award-winning producer Matt Fell
“We had some new songs,” Sophie explains, “and we thought the way to get it done would be to record at home—to bring the studio to us! We wanted to go into an old shed or homestead to get a different sound and a different kind of vibe.”
“It was really organic and natural and fun. We wanted to create something that felt like us. That felt really homely, rural and rustic,” adds Celeste.
The resulting EP finds Sunny Cowgirls at their joyful, authentic, laid back best. “We still love making music and we have every intention of continuing!”
