Released last year to great acclaim, their third album Automatic was recorded between Detroit's legendary Studio and Revolver Studios in Waiuku. It was hailed by the NZ Herald in a breathless five-star review as a 'sonic stunner', and even professional curmudgeon Simon Sweetman declared it "the record of her career" ... "slinky and groovy and – sonically – it’s a joy.". It debuted at number three on the national charts and featured on many end-of-year 'best of' lists.
This year has seen the band make their debut tour of Brazil, and they are about to embark on a comprehensive tour of Europe and, for the first time, the US. Their mid-winter tour of NZ is something of a victory lap for Ladi, Parks, Brandon Haru and Julien Dyne - a band who have always let the music speak for itself.
In support are hotly-tipped Auckland hip-hop collective Team Dynamite. Their laid-back, jazz influenced style has invited comparisons to A Tribe Called Quest, Outkast and De la Soul, albeit with a distinctly NZ flavour. Their latest release, the album Shepherd's Delight features guest appearances from members of Homebrew, @peace and Che Fu and was highly praised by reviewers for its "great mix of sharp flow, clever lines and warm production, evoking the DIY East Coast sound of the ’90s. [Team Dynamite] navigate easily between social commentary, quirky metaphors and retrospect." (NZ Musician).
