Brisbane's Shifting Sands first staggered bleary eyed into the downlight 4 years ago and quickly burnt dive bars like bridges with their beautiful downbeat alco-core aesthetic.
Comprised of members of seminal and established acts SixFtHick, Gentle Ben & his Sensitive Side, Keep On Dancin's and Family Jordan, Shifting Sands burn the mantle of Leonard Cohen, Lee Hazlewood, Nick Cave and Mark Lanegan.
Singer Geoff Corbett takes a full stumble back from his SixFtHick role of high-priest of psychotic swamp blither to snake, slither and baritone croon through a quiver full of whiskey wrecked reflections of unrequited love and busted hearts. Shifting Sands wind their way knowingly through tunes littered with surf, country, French pop and film epic nuance providing the soundtrack while you drink to forget.
On the back of a highly successful France tour last year, Shifting Sands hit the Bison Bar in Nambour, showcasing a handful of new songs from the soon to be released new album. Watch this space man!
The Bison Bar is open from 5pm till late Thu, Fri, Sat.
( 18+ venue )
