Brisbane’s Sweater Curse have returned with their new single ‘Can’t See You Anymore’. It’s a warm, lo-fi indie anthem with a 90’s shoe-gaze edge. It balances its quiet and loud elements to craft an immersive, reflective musical embrace. The track has an earnestness to it, a certain relatable quality which is aided by the heart-on-the-sleeve vocal delivery.
We spoke to the band and had them take us behind the track, to give us a little bit more background on how it came to be.
“Our new single, Can’t See You Anymore, was written just as we were getting more comfortable together as a band. This made the writing process really easy and organic and the song came together really naturally and we had the opportunity to fine tune it through playing it at shows during that time.
When finalising parts I took a lot of influence from the other bands we were playing with or listening to then. Seeing Chris From Jess Locke band and Vanessa from Sleep Club play really made me start thinking more about what I could do with my drum parts in this band.
We recorded it earlier this year with Fletcher Matthews, half in an amazing studio built underneath a Queenslander in Albion and half in our rehearsal room. The song was then mastered by Mikey Young.
There are a few more songs we recorded with Fletcher that we’re looking forward to sharing soon. We also have some WIPs and (maybe) a cover of an artist we love to test out on our upcoming tour dates so keep an eye out. See you so soon, hoo roo.”
