RACING! LIQUID LIVERS! BEATCOMBER! POLISH CLUB announces supports for New Zealand shows!

Displaying

“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.”

POLISH CLUB
‘ALRIGHT ALREADY’
NZ SHOWS

Friday 30th June,
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.

Saturday 1st July,
Meow – WELLINGTON
with support from BEATCOMBER

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,

PIXX RELEASES “WATER SLIDES” MUSIC VIDEO

PIXX
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.”

Everyone from India Arie (“Louis Baker, you sing my soul,”) to the international music community (BBC 6 Music, Clash Magazine, The Line of Best Fit, Earmilk) have shown love for what he is, and has become.

Today, Baker shares his new single “Addict”, the follow up to his previous single “Gave It All Away”, which was picked up by BBC 6 Music, Australian Double J, and featured on Red Bull Music’s 20 before 17 list.
