Melbourne alt-soul gang The Cactus Channel are coming to old New Zealand for a big bag of shows, new songs in tow and vibes a plenty. They’ll be making their NZ debut at Moon 1 (Wellington), Waiheke Jazz Festival & Tauranga Jazz Festival.

Mostly known as the moody instrumental children of Melbourne’s world famous soul scene, the band are moving in new stylistic directions with their latest single ‘Sorry Hills’ with Sam Cromack (Ball Park Music, My Own Pet Radio). Their upcoming 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.

The band takes equal cues from hip hop instrumentals and golden era Soul — counting the sounds of frequent hip hop collaborators BADBADNOTGOOD and the tight arrangement and production style of Stax Records as influences.
