Saskwatch Watch “Bloody Brilliant & Brilliantly Bloody”
“Born to Break Your Heart” Video
US Tour Wraps at Popscream in SF TOMORROW!
Just in time for the raucous celebration that is Halloween, Australian eclectic soul nonetSaskwatch present the gorgeously terrifying visual accompaniment to “Born to Break Your Heart” (directed by Jesse Smith), lifted from their criticallsy acclaimed sophomore full-length album, Nose Dive. Observe as sultry songstress Nkechi Anele systematically kills off her fellow band members in cold blood- a beautifully messy spectacle to a slow-burning ballad both moody and psychedelic. Give the “Born to Break Your Heart” video a peek here.

As a young & buzzing act, Saskwatch has quickly become renowned for their signature ecstatic horns, tight rhythms & soaring vocals- capable of breaking hearts one minute & eliciting frenzied dancing the next. Hot on the heels of the release of Nose Dive earlier this year, the band recently hit the States for the first time, playing a plethora of CMJ shows & Los Angeles to excited crowds of fans both old & new. They’ll wrap their US run tomorrow night in San Francisco!
Every band has a story to tell about how they started out, but few can say that they have gone from busking on the street to gracing the stage at Glastonbury & playing alongside the likes of Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings & Earth, Wind & Fire in just four years! Drawing upon a diverse range of influences, ranging from Dr. Dog to Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, Nose Dive saw the band branching out from the retro-goodtime feel of their debut full-length album, 2012’s Leave It All Behind, into something even more altogether unique.
