Melbourne indie-soul band Saskwatch are heading 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 country and regional towns along the way.
The new album was recorded over a month-long period at Mount Slippery – an old silversmith warehouse-come-recording studio on the outskirts of Philadelphia in the United States. It’s the studio of Dr. Dog’s Scott McMicken and Nathan Sabatino, who together produced the album. Saskwatch have long been fans of Dr. Dog, both musically and in their work as producers, and relished the chance to head overseas and work alongside them.
The result: a raw, solemn and sparse collection of genre-jumping songs.
Fresh off their main support for The Rubens’ 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 a single show.
Check them out at the Grand Hotel in Mornington on Friday, 15th April – tickets available from tickets.oztix.com.au.
