Melbourne indie-soul band Saskwatch head out on a huge national tour to support their acclaimed third album, ‘Sorry I Let It Come Between Us’ (Northside Records/ Remote Control), taking in every major capital city and a plethora of regional towns along the way.
The new album was recorded over a month long period at Mt Slippery – an old silversmith warehouse come recording studio on the outskirts of Philadelphia, America. It’s the studio of Dr Dog’s Scott McMicken and Nathan Sabatino, who together produced the album. Saskwatch have long been big fans of Dr Dog, both musically and in their work as producers, and relished at the chance to head overseas and work alongside them. The result: a raw, solemn and sparse collection of genre-jumping songs.
Fresh off the main support for The Ruben’s big national tour this year and Groovin The Moo festival, Saskwatch smash out their live show, hard, rough and tight. Leading the pack is singer Nkechi Anele, taking audiences from the depths of heartache to overwhelming joy in just one show. This show is not to be missed.4
They’re joined by Brisbane’s indie-pop 4 piece Cub Sport (on select dates), who will be playing songs from their debut album This Is Our Vice out March 4th 2016.
