Cats June 7th: Sweater Curse
This event has passed and sales are now closed
Unabashedly dorks Sweater Curse came together quickly when members Chris, Rei and Monica started captivating Brisbane’s local scene with their charm and evocative, jangly melodies.
Writing songs that have been described as ‘slightly depressing but still groovy’ and ‘introspective, slightly sparkly indie-rock’ the band carved out a niche for themselves with a throwback feel. It didn’t take long for Sweater Curse to catch on.
With only two tracks to their name in 2017, the trio landed slots on sold out lineups with the likes of Camp Cope, Julia Jacklin, These New South Whales, Rolling Blackouts C.F., Jess Locke and Jen Cloher, as well as recent tours with Phantastic Ferniture, Polish Club and Horror My Friend. Throughout the year the band maintained this momentum, also clocking up festival spots at Blurst Of Times, Mountain Goat Valley Crawl, Against The Grain and Secret Garden.
After releasing their second single ‘Don’t Call Me’ at the end of 2017, the band signed to New World Artists and headed out on a national headline tour, with the track stacking up airtime on triple j, Unearthed, FBi and 4ZZZ. This year Sweater Curse have headed back into the studio, releasing their debut EP produced by Fletcher Matthews (Dear Seattle / Clews), as well as single ‘Can’t See You Anymore’ which earned them rotation on triple j as well as the coveted Unearthed Feature Artist slot. Now the band have released ‘Mon’s Song’, a track born of troubled relationships, vivid dreaming and psycho-analysis.
