It's New Zealand Music Month, and to celebrate we have some curated playlists coming your way from some of Aotearoa's finest musical talent. Kicking things off, we have SACHI, have a listen below!
Shapeshifter - 'Monarch'
We remember this song playing on George FM back in the day when we first got our licenses. Fond memories of driving around Auckland with this song blasting on a nice day with friends.
SACHI - 'Take Me Back'
We first played this song at Rhythm & Vines main stage, it was an amazing way to debut it.
Matthew Young - 'Like Falling'
Matthew Young is one of our favourite NZ artists and close friend. This song just makes me feel like I’m 16 again. Great vibe.
Muroki - 'Wavy'
Since we heard this song the first time, it was stuck in our heads. Muroki is a legend too.
RIIKI REID - 'Meet U Again'
Love the vibe of this song. The lead in the post chorus is so amazing.
SACHI - 'Lift Off'
(ft. Carla Wehbe)
One of our favourite tracks from the last EP, super fun one to play live. Carla was amazing to work with.
Goodwill - 'Get Angry'
A good song by our good friend Goodwill. Somehow simultaneously macabre and dulcet. Every lyric in this song feels perfectly crafted like one of those wooden-model-boat-in-a-glass-bottle hobbyists.
Belladonna - 'Love Like This'
Belladonna is a Wellington artist I recently found in some corner of the internet. Her voice instantly captivated me, everything about it is so in its own world.
Marlon Williams - 'My Boy'
The beautiful new one from the Prince of Lyttleton. He can’t miss. Drums from Piha’s finest Elroy Finn.
Eden Burns - 'Super Stroke'
The latest from Eden Burns, dear friend, collaborator and one my favourite DJs. His music is like a fine wine or cheese, just keeps getting
better with age.
Crowded House - 'To The Island'
(Unknown Mortal Orchestra Remix)
New Crowded House remixed by UMO. What more is there to say.
Leaping Tiger - 'Gooey'
Leaping Tiger just put out a really incredible video for this song directed by him and Oscar Keys which painted the song in a whole new light for me. Gooey is interesting, ethereal, nasty, quirky.
