Following their much-acclaimed first single ‘Sorry Hills’, alt-soul gang The Cactus Channel & Sam Cromack (Ball Park Music, My Own Pet Radio) are announcing a one-off Australian tour in May/June in support of their upcoming EP ‘Do It F or Nothing’.
Mostly known as the moody instrumental children of Melbourne’s world famous soul scene, The Cactus Channel have been moving in a new stylistic direction with this collaboration. The EP treads a thin line between alt-soul and the best of indie pop, swimming in compelling atmospherics and deftly weaving Cromack’s rich, drawling vocal and disarming, meditative lyrics through the band’s typically intuitive arrangements.
