When: Wednesday, 1st June 2016
Where: The Cambridge Hotel – 789 Hunter Street, Newcastle NSW
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.
