Black Swollen River
Dark and driving alt-country. Salter Cane deals in 'tales of whiskey-soaked madness, bloodied hands and long dark nights of the soul'. Variously described as melancountria, gothic country and 'part swoonsome, part demonic country-noir', the UK-based band falls somewhere between Nick Cave and Leonard Cohen, or Joy Division and Johnny Cash. They've brought their brooding sound to numerous live audiences, playing the prestigious End of the Road festival, headlining shows in their hometown of Brighton and elsewhere in the UK, and opening for such acts as Giant Sand, My Morning Jacket, The Sadies and The Black Keys. The Black Swollen River EP is Salter Cane's latest release. 'Nick Cave-ian epicness' - Chris Long, BBC 'Think Nick Cave if he'd really been The Man In Black. The greatest exponents of slide bouzouki and thrilling songs to boot.' - Shaun Whitehouse, 'The Gilded Palace of Sin' 'Brighton's finest homegrown purveyors of doom-laden alt. Country Americana. Yeah, we're all going to die some time, but let's break out the whisky and hear about some of the more interesting ways to go.' - The Brighton Source magazine.
