the AU interview: Avalanche City (Auckland) Talks Touring And Newly Released Album 'We Are For The Wild Places'

Dave Baxter, aka Avalanche City has been a busy man. Travelling across New Zealand and Australia, the artist has been touring extensively in support of his album, We Are For The Wild places, which released in July of this year. Currently on the road with Conrad Sewell, Dave is enthusiastic about the shows so far. “[They’ve] been really good,” he says. “I really like playing to Australian audiences. Really good, fun shows.” His last visit to Australia was two years ago, but his return is timed well, coinciding with the release of his new record. The reception to his live songs has been great so far. “Interestingly enough, this is the first time I’ve been playing the songs live... with a band set-up,” he says. “It’s gone down really good, and people love it. It’s a nice little boost to self-confidence that people like the new songs.”

If you like your folk-pop music delivered with an ethereal, almost haunting, quality and you were devastated when Chris Walla left Death Cab For Cutie, this song may be the perfect remedy. Auckland's Avalanche City - moniker for songwriter Dave Baxter - has released his latest single in "Inside Out" and man, does it tug at the heartstrings. The single comes off Baxter's forthcoming album We Are for the Wild Places, which was mixed by Walla and if "Inside Out" is any indication of what to expect, we're keen to see what musical textures and emotions are developed upon and explored further.
