Brisbane/Toowoomba 5 piece alt-country band Suicide Swans in their previous 5 year incarnation through the release of their self titled EP ‘Suicide Swans’ (2012) and debut album ‘Ghosts We Forget’ (2014) featured the bands sound of mixing the twang of country, the chug of 60’s/70’s rock with dashes of pop that they termed cosmic country. In 2017 the band releases their second album ‘Augusta’ that further pushes their alt-country sound into new musical territory for the band incorporating pop, woodsy mid tempo rock, mixed with washes of violin, Wurlitzer/Rhodes flourishes, 4 part harmonies and reverb-laden vocals. To celebrate the release of their album ‘Augusta’ the band brings their ragged live performances to the Skukum Lounge/Junk Bar where they will on the night be sonically mixing Crazy Horse with a couple of Old Fashions. Along for the ride on the night is support from Brisbane’s cowboy/girl duo Hillsborough brushing off some sad cowboy/acoustic psych songs in the tradition of Lee Hazelwood having a drink with Arthur Lee.
