SBD presents


Friday June 21st

A ‘stripped back’ show.

Alberta Cross was formed by Swedish-born lead singer and guitarist Petter Ericson Stakee in London, though after a long stint in Brooklyn, New York they’re now based in Frome, Somerset. Their anthemic Americana-tinged songs possessed a vulnerability and earthiness, they’ve consistently pushed the boundaries of alternative rock with their timeless sound and artistic vision, and it soon showed in how hugely their debut record ‘The Thief & The Heartbreaker’ [2007] began to connect.

What followed was a success on both sides of the Atlantic and the relentless grind of US touring that comes with it. They embarked on high-profile jaunts with Mumford & Sons, Portugal The Man, Neil Young, Johnny Marr, Ringo Starr, Them Crooked Vultures, and Rag N’ Bone Man, performing on distinguished TV shows around the globe, appearing on The Late Show with David Letterman, Last Call with Carson Daly and more, whilst their tracks were featured on hit TV shows such as Million Little Pieces, CSI, Sons of Anarchy and Californication.

The latest single is ‘Born In Amazement’, a collaboration with Band Of Skulls, channelling T. Rex and Bowie into a rawk banger. Before that Alberta Cross delved into the complexities of paternal connection with ‘Watch Me Fall Down’. Recorded with producer and Mercury Prize nominated, critically acclaimed artist Ed Harcourt (Paloma Faith, James Bay, Lana Del Ray) at his studio Wolf Cabin, ‘Watch Me Fall Down’ is an introspective exploration into a father’s relationship with his children. Through shuffling drums and atmospheric soundscapes hides powerful lyrics which are sure to resonate with anyone who struggles with the complexities of paternal connection. Discussing the lyrical themes behind the single, vocalist and lyricist Petter Ericson Stakee says: “I'd say its a fever dream about the dichotomy between the idealistic perspective that one's offspring have of their patriarch, yet really there's a giant invisible tiger pulling all the stitches out of his mangled puppet body”.
