SACHI get their groove on in new single, Shelter feat. Nïka
The New Zealand electronic duo are currently rounding up a bunch of dates across Australia, including a slot at Groovin' The Moo.
New Zealand boys SACHI have become one of our favourite electronic acts around at the moment, largely thanks to their anthem-filmed debut Lunch With Bianca EP last year. After linking up with Swindail for his wonky Jussrite single earlier this year, SACHI have officially kicked off a big second half of 2017 ahead with Shelter, a classy new single featuring Nïka. Much like their previous singles in No More and Hold On, Shelter is one of those singles that perfectly replicate that golden festival-radio crossover, with Nïka's vocal work soaring above an accessible, blissed-out production that clangs away with a summery, steel-drum-infused sound. In the track's chorus, SACHI really opens things up, keeping things fresh with a groovy bass line that subtly mimics a Kaytranada-esque funk-house breakdown. The single couldn't really come at a better time for the boys, who are currently rounding up their most extensive Australian tour yet including one-off shows at Groovin The Moo and dates supporting Running Touch (full dates below). The question is though - can they excel their performance in 2016, where they went from a low-key local NZ duo to a big electronic outfit with radio-crossover across the Tasman? Judging from Shelter, I'm going to make an early call and say "yes.".
