Drunken performances! Trips to the mountains! Songs about secrets and lies!
Get set for fun times as Sydney’s favourite popsters Cuthbert & the Night Walkers return with their second album, Mr Pickwick’s Camera. Due for release Friday 9 October through ABC Music/Universal, the lively septet will be celebrating its release with launch parties across the east coast throughout November.
Catch Cuthbert & the Night Walkers performing their memorable melodies and heavenly vocals on Friday 13 November at Bon Amici in Toowoomba, Saturday 14 November at X&Y in Brisbane, Saturday 21 November at the Annandale Hotel in Sydney, Thursday 26 November at Transit Bar in Canberra, and Saturday 28 November at the John Curtin Hotel (Curtin Bandroom) in Melbourne.
Featuring the glorious first single, ‘Pace Ourselves’, the rowdy ‘High Horse’, and the reflective ‘Clean House’, Mr Pickwick’s Camera is an unforgettable journey through the human condition. Engineered by Haima Marriott (Architecture in Helsinki), the album is largely the result of jamming sessions held in an old house in the Blue Mountains.
Mr Pickwick’s Camera follows Cuthbert’s 2007 debut, Love Needs Us, which came after the band was “Unearthed” by triple j. Forming in 2005, Cuthbert & the Night Walkers played their first gig at a Macquarie Uni band comp, which they lost. As front man Richie Cuthbert says, “In hindsight, we were probably really, really loose and very, very annoying. I have made my personal peace with those judges.”
Four years later, Cuthbert & the Night Walkers have nothing to prove as the exquisite pop of Mr Pickwick’s Camera says it all. Consisting of four girls, three guys and an amazing assortment of instruments, there’s no Australian band quite like Cuthbert & the Night Walkers.
