EVER heard of jellyfish roll? Well, three lads from the Gold Coast are touring regional Victoria playing surfy jellyfish roll songs in pubs.
Valley Floor's bass player Clay MacDonald, who used to play with The Beautiful Girls/Angus & Julia Stone, said band which has only been together for 10 months had already been noticed by Triple J.
He said the band was getting air time and hoped as they produced more tunes the band would be recognised from its early offerings Forget The Feeling and Your Garden is Your Flower.

Fresh from a Murray to Moyne fundraiser in Penshurst last night, MacDonald said the trio were six weeks into their first tour along the east coast.
"It's like a country-surf-blues-garage-stomp-jellyfish roll our music. I tell people it's the Atlantics meets Tumbleweed meets the Easybeats meets the HooDoo Gurus," MacDonald said.
The group, including vocalist and guitarist Jesse Bailey and drummer Dan Briffa, met at music festivals while playing with other bands and "always wanted to jam".
"We only decided to hit the road a week before Christmas, so I hit the phones to organise things," MacDonald said.
He said the group made an EP about three months ago and when the tour finishes at Kirra, Queensland at the end of the month, the group wants to record their first album.
"Touring has been awesome. Way beyond our expectations."
This week their tour takes them to Lorne at the Cuda Bar on Thursday, Baha Taco's in Rye on Saturday and The Bottom Pub in Cobram on Sunday.
MacDonald said the Cobram stop would have a "family-vibe" as it was chance for him to catch up with cousins and maybe even coax some on to the stage.
