With front man Andy Cabic having wrapped up a brief European tour of duo shows with Devendra Banhart, Vetiver are pleased to announce a lengthy run of European headline shows in September and October. These dates come in support of the band’s new release Complete Strangers, which Uncut calls 'a laidback gem... unforced, liquid in its forward movement and refreshingly free of pretense or irony'.
Cabic says: 'Vetiver is what I’ve been calling my songs and recordings since about 2003 or so. I live in San Francisco, have since 1998. My touring band and the musicians I’ve recorded with over the years are always changing, though many friends and players have stayed with me over albums and tours. The one constant has been Thom Monahan who has engineered and co-produced every Vetiver album. Thom lives in LA, where most of Complete Strangers was recorded.
'The album came together slowly over demos at my home in San Francisco and quick trips to LA, continuing on with Thom at his studio. It moved in fits and starts for a couple years. Once we had the basic arrangements we jumped in the studio with Bart Davenport, Gabe Noel and Josh Adams for a few days to put down rhythm tracks. That’s when the album really took shape. Thom & I fleshed everything out with a few more musicians in San Francisco and LA, and eventually Complete Strangers arrived.'
'Its once familiar sound that builds and expands, prompting you to realise that, somewhere along the way, you have maybe grown and discovered a little too' - Vogue
