Melbourne six-piece strike a bittersweet balance on LP four.
So many of pop’s most compelling songs remain those composed of equal parts light and shade. Having dabbled with this dichotomy on 2015′s Sorry I Let It Come Between Us, here Saskwatch nail it. “It doesn’t feel like there’s much difference between love and loss,” Nkechi Anele reflects on “December Nights”, a bubbling pool of psychedelic pop that draws melancholy from even its brightest moments. “Renoir” is equally compelling, as is the sparse “Fortress”. But don’t be fooled; this is a record for dancing away a broken heart, not wallowing in one.
