Australian Duo, Bag Raiders, Debut “Checkmate”

Since 2005, Sydney-based pair, Bag Raiders, have graced us with mouthwatering installments of indie dance and synth-pop. From hits, like Friends Inside, to smooth jams, like Nairobi, the Australian duo have been nothing less than impressive.

Just two weeks ago, the gifted group revealed another set of first-rate tracks, with blockbuster single, Checkmate, paving the way. Featuring vocals from Safia’s own Benjamin Joseph, the infectious release sees the Bag Raiders smother listeners with catchy melodies and disco-charged synths.

Tune into Checkmate below, purchase your copy of the track here, and be sure to say hi to the Bag Raiders at one of their upcoming tour dates.
