Endearing and unstoppable all at once, Brisbane’s Sweater Curse are today thrilled to share their brand new single ‘Can’t See You Anymore’. In support of the release, the trio will be stepping out on tour across the east coast next month.
Despite being a fresh drop, the single has already garnered a stack of support from Triple J, with 4.5 star reviews from the likes of Bridget Hustwaite, Declan Byrne, Max Quinn and Dan Condon, and a first play on Good Nights followed by Home & Hosed.
The single was engineered, produced, and mixed by Fletcher Matthews (Dear Seattle / Clews / Columbus), and mastered by Mikey Young (Eddy Current Suppression Ring / Total Control).
“Can't See You Anymore is about learning how and when to start looking after yourself first over someone or something else,” says vocalist Mon Sottile. “I wrote this song when I realised that I had to end a relationship because no matter what happened it wasn’t going to get better but I wasn’t sure how to end it.”
“The recording process with Fletch was really fun and easy! We’d already been playing the song for ages and had recorded demos along the way plus Fletch is really easy to work with so it was great! I had been a bit sick and my throat had been dry and sore so I was really worried that I was going to lose my voice before/during recording but it worked out okay!”
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.
With only two tracks released, the band have landed themselves on sold out line-ups with Camp Cope, Julia Jacklin, These New South Whales, Rolling Blackouts C.F., Jess Locke and Jen Cloher.
Sweater Curse have also performed on the festival circuit securing spots on the likes of 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 headed out on a national headline tour and was well-received by the likes of Richard Kingsmill, Dom Alessio, Dave Ruby-Howe and Gemma Pike, getting airtime on triple j, Unearthed and 4ZZZ and signed the band to New World Artists.
Heading back into the studio, Sweater Curse are now working on their debut EP with producer Fletcher Matthews (Dear Seattle / Clews / Columbus) with their next single highly anticipated.
