Do yourself a favour and go to these shows. It may be the last time to see the band up close and personal!
GigList spoke to guitar boss Soph Nathan about what the band listen to on the road to fend off boredom and break up the endless tedium and monotony of travelling from town to town.
Listen to the Our Girl Tour Bus Tracks below
'Shark Smile' - Big Thief
I'm so in love with Big Thief at the moment! When I'm in charge of the music we'll often just listen to their two records round.
'Jerry' - Boy Azooga
We went on tour with Boy Azooga supporting The Magic Gang this year. They're such nice guys and a really brilliant band, we love this song!
'Mika Dora' - Amen Dunes
This is a Josh classic and it's a really good driving song. It feels cool, I feel like the sun should be shining and we should be in a convertible with the roof down when we listen to this.
'Give It Up' - Angel Olsen
We'll often listen to a whole Angel Olsen record too. She's a brilliant songwriter, and I love the sadder more downbeat songs she's made, but this one's great on the road.
'Cecilia' - Simon & Garfunkel
This is a classic singalong one!!
