Saskwatch are back with their fourth album, Manual Override – a sonic kaleidoscope where ever-changing soundscapes and colourful patterns neatly evoke elements of neo-psychedelic, indie-pop and soul.
Manual Override marks a special moment for the band as it’s the first time the six-piece outfit have co-produced & mixed their own work, alongside sound engineer and long-term friend Cal Barter in Newmarket Studios, Melbourne.
Manual Override is rich in moods and playful in its progression. It’s a tour-de-force that consolidates Saskwatch as a band that’s eager to explore, confident in their musical abilities and capable of producing a powerful, timeless album. It’s experimental and playful nature blends genres and feels liberating, producing a record that sounds earnest, mature and timeless.
The industry has echoed these sentiments – On top of triple j added the album packet on release, and have supported each single with very strong airplay. Songs from the album have been added to Spotify playlists around the world and amassed over a million plays. Thanks to these playlists the band discovered thousands of loyal fans throughout Central and South America.
The band have just come off the back of a successful national tour that saw them bring their famous live show to fans Australia-wide, armed with a swag of favourites both old and new. Four albums in, Saskwatch have rubber stamped their status as one of Australia’s premier live acts.
