What is Melbourne like in winter?
I think Melbourne is made for winter. Especially if you take a walk across the bridge from Flinders Street Station down St Kilda Road with all the trees dropping their leaves and past the NGV, which usually holds a big exhibition for the winter nights.

Does playing gigs in winter have a different feeling to the summer months?
Our gigging is more intimate with small crowds, playing indoor venues and sometime having residencies each month. This time allows us to work on our live performances, refining new songs and the way we deliver music to people.

Where do you like to eat in winter?
The Meatball and Wine Bar, where I had and fell in love with polenta for the first time.

Which bar would we find you at on a frosty night?
The Woods of Windsor. It’s one of those bars that make you feel like you are sitting in a lodge on the side of a snowy mountain.

What is Saskwatch looking forward to in the coming months?
Earlier this year we released a new single, I Get Lonely, and toured the east coast of Australia. We also just got back from playing the Back to Black Festival in Spain and the Glastonbury Festival. So now we are working on our new album. We have a lot to look forward to, if all goes to plan.
