Hank Tree • Sweet Saltpeter • 2023

‘Sweet Saltpeter’ is about feeling dispensable in, yet trapped by, work life, however the music contains a certain warmth, as if being licked by a campfire, while reflecting on the hardships portrayed through the lyrics, which relate to the difficult work and climatic conditions faced by workers in the saltpeter towns of northern Chile… Hank Tree is a Glasgow based project led by Fergus MacDonald (ex- State Broadcasters), also comprising Roy Shearer (Ultras, Inspector Tapehead) and Bart Owl (Eagleowl, Broken Chanter). Hank Tree's first EP was released by Chilean label Uva Robot followed up by their aforementioned debut LP.
