This week’s feature album comes from Melbourne band The Cactus Channel with “Stay A While”.
This is the band’s third album, and a departure from their signature soul-funk instrumental roots. Stepping up to the mic is the band’s own Lewis Coleman, adding a new dimension of silvery vocals. Marking a decisive turning point, their music has evolved into something wilder, a little darker and heavier. The inclusion of vocal melodies and dreamy soundtracks are embellished with electrifying wig-outs and woozy meditations.
This new sound has been cooking for a while now, with their boundary-splintering EP alongside Ball Park Music singer Sam Cromack release earlier this year, following a 7″ single collaboration with Nick Murphy (known as Chet Faker).
To support “Stay A While” the band has release a music video for ‘Storefront’ and is embarking on a national tour beginning 24th November at the Foundry in Brisbane.
Catch them in Sydney on December 1st at the Factory Floor! Tickets from thecactuschannel.com/tour.
