Sky Eater

Sky Eater is the sonic story of two multi-instrumental musical warriors: sax-wielding Chelsea Skyeater, armed with dubbed-out honey vocals, powerful lyrics, luscious keys and dub soldier TK Bassdread with his artillery of beastly bass, beats, vocals and of course more live dubs. The two crossed paths for years as they toured with other projects, but 2018 saw their paths cross again, and this time quickly become inseparable musical allies and bring you all that is Mermaid Trip-Hop Dub. This well travelled pair of highly trained musicians have played music right across the globe with a range of artists at many popular festivals, including Glastonbury (UK), Woodford, Island Vibe, Luminate (NZ) and Wallaby Creek. After returning from a 6 month tour around Australia Sky Eater started collaborating on a fresh repertoire, drawing from UK born TKBassDread’s experience in dub, trip-hop and drum and bass to further enrich the serene songs and soundscape that Chelsea creates Often described as a “modern day Sade” and compared to Morcheeba, Sky Eater take their audiences on a “mesmerising and elegant” (Nkechi - Roots n All) journey that is full of soul and jazz moments. They released their debut EP in January 2019, and toured it throughout the east coast of Australia and South Island New Zealand. They are soon due to release their next single “The Rain” which has spent its fair share of time on the Triple J Unearthed “Roots” charts, and have a full length album currently in the works, due to be released later this year. This powerhouse duo is a definite up and coming act that is not to be missed!
