Melbourne band The Cactus Channel have announced an Australian tour in support of their forthcoming third album 'Stay A While' . The album represents a new consciousness and a decisive turning point. Unloosed from their earlier incarnation as an instrumental soul and funk band into something wilder, a little darker and heavier, the new album sees The Cactus Channel diving in deep to dreamlike soundtracks, electrifying wig-outs and woozy meditations.
Hitting a dozen destinations around Australia this November & December, this new embodiment of The Cactus Channel flexes their classic soul and funk influences whilst expanding their own songwriting along psychedelic paths, adding weight and substance to their melodic and rhythmic axis.
They've had a big year too, including hyped shows at Bigsound and national tour support for City Calm Down . Catch the band on this intimate run of shows.
There were signifiers along the road; a boundary-splintering EP with Ball Park Music singer Sam Cromack last year, following a 7" single collab with Nick Murphy, released as The Cactus Channel feat. Chet Faker . These outings were a glimpse of the alchemy of adding vocals to the band's typically intuitive, instrumental arrangements. And now with the band's own Lewis Coleman stepping up to the mic, a vocal dimension has become part of The Cactus Channel's fully formed, signature sound.
Catch The Cactus Channel at the Ed Castle this December 15.
