On their unique path to personal and artistic euphoria, The McClymonts spend half their time in the mayhem of their hectic family lives - and the other half in the madness of a relentless touring schedule. Somewhere in between, they have carved out the space to breathe life into their first studio album in over 3 years. The McClymonts have revealed their sixth studio album Mayhem to Madness will be released Friday June 12th. To mark this announcement, Australia’s most celebrated country group have shared the official video for their current single ‘I Got This’.
The 10-track album will be released on CD, digital format and as a first for The McClymonts, available in vinyl format.
Teaming up with Newcastle based director Bradley Murnane, the ‘I Got This’ video was filmed early March near Cessnock NSW. Bradley previously directed video clips for artists such as Gretta Ray, Ainslie Wills and Vera Blue. The reception has been nothing but positive for ‘I Got This’ even claiming The McClymonts the highest ever debut of a new single on the AustralianCountry Hot 50 Airplay Chart, charting at #9.
Mayhem to Madness was co-written by Brooke, Sam & Mollie McClymont with additional credits from Lindsay Rimes, Phil Barton, Robby De Sa, Georgi Kay, Jennifer Hanson, Alexandra Hosking, Whakaio Taahi, Lindsey Jackson and Andy Mak who produced the album and co-wrote “I Got This”. Included on the album is a cover of Fleetwood Mac’s, 'Little Lies'.
After years of hard work and dedicated practise, The McClymonts breath taking harmonies are what most connects audiences to them.
It’s simply genetic good fortune that middle sister Sam McClymont always had a vocal register suited to singing below her big sister Brooke’s melody line; while third sister Mollie could naturally sing higher.
But that didn’t stop wonder-producer Andy Mak advocating for a different approach.
“Andy really pushes us NOT to sing the harmonies that are most natural and obvious to us”,reveals Sam. “He’ll pick out a completely different note within the scale and want us to try that”!
While it may have required some significant “retraining of the brain” during studio sessions, Mollie McClymont agrees their reimagined approach to harmonies has given the album an elevated sense of texture: “We also take that into our live performances which keeps it more interesting for our audiences”.
