Reveal New Music Video For
‘Line Of Sight’ (feat. WYNNE & MANSIONAIR)
Touring September 2017:
Thursday September 14 – Great Hall, Auckland NZ
ODESZA (Harrison Mills, Clayton Knight) has today unveiled their new music video for ‘Line Of Sight (feat. WYNNE & Mansionair)’, a stylish, visually striking sci-fi tale shot in Hawaii.
With it’s vivid juxtaposition of sci-fi elements strewn amidst a tropical paradise, ‘Line Of Sight’ aligns ODESZA’s epic, infectious tune with the story of an unlikely bond between a boy and a robot. Directed by Daniel Brown with live-action production company UNHEARD/OF, the young protagonist’s ingenuity and sense of survival in the most isolated of sanctuaries pairs a beautiful visual accompaniment to the already cinematic track.
Check out the video for ODESZA’s “euphoric new single” (NPR Music) ‘Line Of Sight (feat WYNNE & Mansionair)’

Fresh off the back of a successful series of gigs, showcases and press days across the UK and EU, Kane Strang returns home for the launch of his sophomore album, Two Hearts and No Brain on Dead Oceans and launches a brand new music video for latest single My Smile Is Extinct, that has held the number one spot at NZ Alternative Radio for three weeks.
Once again, Kane has collaborated with Christchurch based film-maker Julian Vares

Shot on location in one of New Zealand’s traditional Scottish halls complementing the sardonic and dry humour of Kane and his lyrics.

Tuning Fork, Auckland
“As with previous dynamic duos Black Keys and White Stripes, you’re offered a soulful, howling vocalist/ guitarist (David Novak) and a hefty, no-frills drummer (John-Henry Pajak), the sound a punky retread of 60s R’n’B. Both men pledge allegiance to Stax/Motown, their soul moves refracted through a lens of their favourite garage rock bands: The Stooges and The Strokes.”

Whammy! Bar – AUCKLAND
with support from
RACING & LIQUID LIVERS
RACING is a swirling sea of groove and hypnosis. Think rock and roll anthems drenched in strange tropical dance music. They are an Auckland four piece that have managed to take rock and roll music and inject it with a chemical haze so ominous and dangerous that it leaves you feeling both pleased and punished.
Auckland based two-piece LIQUID LIVERS marries the big beat of TWO WOLVES to the scuzz groove of BLOODBAGS! Bass and drums, filling the space left to them, with as much good time evil rhythms as they can muster. Two’s company, there’s a crowd, one amp, cans and china, it can be just as loud.

Hailing from the Harbour City, BEATCOMBER are a self-credited lo-fi guitar garage pop band. The quirky five-friend lineup deliver super delayed sonic pop, infused with spasming psychedelia and distortion. Inspired by the likes of Thee Oh Sees, Ty Segall and King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard,

Listen to new single “Waterslides” with video
Taken from debut album, The Age Of Anxiety
Out June 2nd 2017 on 4AD / Rhythmethod
“A genuinely smart, intriguingly playful set that both presses all the right Big Pop buttons and sounds decidedly off-centre.” Uncut 8/10
“Dazzling and infectious.” Dork ****
Pixx – the alter ego of Hannah Rodgers – has released a new song, ‘Waterslides’, from her forthcoming debut album, The Age Of Anxiety.
A spiralling pop song, its accompanying video fuses a lo-fi aesthetic with the ultra-modern; the synthetic and the natural. Filmed in the futuristic city scape of Bilbao, directors Alice Clingan and Louis Milner explain the premise behind its visual companion. “The lyrics to ‘Waterslides’ are inspired by a dream Hannah had, isolated on a waterpark in the middle of the ocean, surrounded by emotionless suited figures. We tried to make the video in keeping with the surreal and lonely imagery that inspired the song.”
