Salter Cane are an unsigned alt-country band based in Brighton, UK. They cite their chief influence as Joy Division and are often compared to Nick Cave, primarily due to Chris Askew’s vocals. Other members of the band are Jamie Freeman on drums, Jessica Spengler on bass and Jeremy Keith on bouzouki.
Salter Cane's second full-length album, Sorrow, has a harder edge and even darker heart than their first self-titled release. Growling acoustic guitar, soaring vocals and driving drums are accompanied by the band's trademark wailing bouzouki sound, creating an atmosphere which creeps relentlessly from melancholy to menace.
