Take 5 With Sweater Curse

Today sweater curse gift us their second EP push//pull; a delicate and brooding collection of songs, the 4-track EP is reflective of the band’s formative years both musically and personally. Produced by Ball Park Music‘s Sam Cromack, push//pull takes sweater curse’s signature sound and steers it in a new sonic direction. 

To celebrate the release we caught up with the 3 piece to find out who they’re listening to.

Kllo – Somehow 

I have been a big fan of Kllo for a while now, and their newest album ‘Maybe I Could’ builds on their existing aesthetic so nicely. I chose Somehow because it is such a great example of the songwriting that I love from this duo – really lush and interesting production with a simple and beautiful hook that stays in my head for days.


Cry Club – Nine of Swords

It’s no secret that sweater curse loves Cry Club forever. Their brand of indie-rock and pop fills my heart and makes me happy and angsty at the same time. Heather’s vocals are amazing and Jono’s guitars are always HUGE.


IDLES – Mr Motivator

IDLES are the perfect model of the modern punk band. This song is so good and the use of dynamic in it is so engaging. A real hype-up song.


Alice Skye – Grand Ideas

This song is such a beautiful combination of thoughtful lyrics and catchy melody. Alice Skye is always producing tracks like this that I am sure will stand the test of time. A long time fav for sure.


Tkay Maidza – Don’t Call Again
I’ve been a fan of Tkay Maidza for a long time, and this song was stuck in my head on the first listen. It’s a bop and the film clip is all of my hyper-saturated 2000s childhood dreams.


Sweater Curse’s brand new EP Push//Pull is available now, everywhere.
