The Killer Seas

About The Killer Seas:

The Killer Seas are a rock band from Queenstown, New Zealand. They play raw soul music soaked in whiskey, overdrive and reverb.

“From an island in the south pacific that is pounded by raging waters on all sides in an alpine town surrounded by mountains come The Killer Seas!”

It’s their blending of rough and polished, loud and quiet, soul and noise that has seen them winning over crowd after crowd. A working band with a wall of guitar fuzz, rumbling low-end bass and pounding drums behind howling vocals. The Killer Seas have been performing together since late 2013.

The Killer Seas are Tai Forrester/Joe Cowie/Joel Rowlands/Andy Paterson with live appearances from Conan Wilcox.

Kids of 88

About Kids of 88:

New Zealand electro-pop duo Kids of 88 are a throwback to the pulsing sounds of the ‘80s.

Jordan Arts and Sam McCarthy debuted their slithering, synth-heavy sound in 2008 and self-released their first single, ‘My House’, on their own Dryden Street label in 2009. The song took off, eventually being certified platinum in New Zealand and drawing the attention of Sony Music.

Kids of 88 describe their music as “a cross between a late 80s police drama intro theme and a sophisticated super hussy”. With sleazy basslines and mind-numbingly catchy hooks, Kids Of 88 are all about poking tongues and making sweaty suggestive inuendos.
