BAG RAIDERS

With chakras aligned, Bag Raiders have released Checkmate, their third and final installment in a series of premium cuts all leading up to the release of their second full-length album this summer.

Checkmate features a triple dose of infectious, radiant electronic pop that dances across the spectrum. Lead single Checkmate features Benjamin Joseph (of Safia fame) - a softly spoken and understated song. The light at the end of the tunnel grows ever bigger as the subtly unfolding arpeggio finally culminates in a kind of quiet, personal triumph. Breakdown highlights the band's new and further evolved sound, moving away from their bashful, club-focused debut into something more dynamic and classically song-based. With the final track, Magic Feel's slick, purple-tinged funk is another unashamedly sunny clutch of their pointed post-pop style.

Bag Raiders enjoyed a rapturous reception to their self-titled debut album in 2010, a gold-certified, ARIA-nominated affair that included slices of euphoria like mega-hit "Shooting Stars", "Way Back Home" and "Sunlight". Upon its release the band set out on a succession of live shows around the world.

The Bag Raiders are currently taking the full live band on the road on an extensive North American tour and will return to Australia in May for a National Tour.
