Bag Raiders are back in a big way with the Checkmate EP and an Aussie tour

Bag Raiders are back in a big way with the Checkmate EP and an Aussie tour

Come along now, and enter the feel good vibes.

Grab a seat on the good vibes train, as it has definitely arrived with this latest release from Bag Raiders. In typical BR fashion we're met with the chilled, kinda groovy, kinda soulful happiness extruding from the sounds created by the duo. If that wasn't enough they've thrown in vocal maestro Benjamin Joseph who you might know as the frontman for SAFIA, whose own gift of singing adds immensely to the euphoric title track for Bag Raiders' new EP, Checkmate. It features two other tracks alongside the colab, all offering the luscious electronic/indie/tropical pop sounds we love from the duo. They're currently on an extensive tour throughout the US and Canada, but they'll be back in Australia for a run of headline dates mid-year - check dates down the bottom:

CHECKMATE TOUR:

May 26 - Adelaide, Rocket Bar

May 27 - Canberra, Academy

May 28 - Melbourne, Howler
