Saskwatch – ‘December Nights’

Melbourne indie-pop collective, Saskwatch are back.

Since the release of their third studio album last year, the group may have downsized in members but maximized in soundz.

‘December Nights’ sees the 6-piece toe the line between electronic / pop / rock. Add in a twinkling flute, a groove-heavy bass line and some tight keys and the line is getting pretty thick and windy. But it works.

“Sonically, it’s new ground for Saskers… Taking inspiration from long hot summer nights, Nkechi’s (huge) voice, and that weird feeling you get inside when you listen to the Beach Boys,” explains Liam McGorry (guitar, keys, horn).

The song is the first cut from the band’s forthcoming record, out this year. This track along with the rest of the album is self-produced and mixed alongside engineer and friend Callum John Barter at Newmarket Studios. Thinking we could listen to this most nights.
