Any love for them on here ? saw them do Buffalo on Jools Holland the other week and was properly blown away..
..I got a bit bored. Lovely though
I was at a festival in the summer and wandered into one of the tents to check them out, only for them to finish their set about 30 seconds after I got there.
Thus confirming my theory that everyone in New Zealand knows each other.
It's also amazing. Stick with it:
And I've been following them since before their first album. Really glad to see them doing well, and to hear their sound develop. The first album's a bit basic, though 'Going Fishing' is a tune, but from the second one (Pegasus) they get pretty good.
On the "everyone knows everyone" angle, their singer's father is one of NZ's best known cartoonists. And they did the soundtrack for Taika Waititi's (that guy who directed the FoTC episode) film Eagle v Shark, which starred Jemaine from FoTC, who also used to be in a comedy duo with Taika called Humourbeasts.
`Horsepower` is easily their best album.
Never heard of them before but definitely good enough to get my attention. I think only about half of the new album is really worth that much, but Buffalo is one of my songs of the year
