Hello Australia & Canada!

“Popular People” has been playlisted on the Australian/Canadian radio show Stranded. Being on the same playlist as UMO and Dimmer makes us happy.

Stranded podcast #273

So, on my journey to find a picture of a baby moose (because Canada), I found out something interesting. Did you know Canada has about 1 million moose? I discovered that fact on mooseworld.com. Their site is partially about seeing how the metaphor of “moose” can make lives better and happier. I thoroughly encourage you to check out their website – it even has a moose of the day, every day. I’m not quite sure how I can apply the metaphor of “moose” in my life, but I’m sure going to try. Any way of celebrating all things Canadian can only be a good thing, like drinking maple syrup straight from the bottle. Now that’s the good life.

People are talking about us!

Good things only of course. We feel pretty special!



I initially posted this without a animal, but it didn’t seem right, so here are some cute red pandas! Our label manager of Fishrider Records, Ian, tells me that pandas are one of the most popular animals on the internet…but how awesome are red pandas?!

Listen to our new single on Under the radar

Under the radar has debuted our single, “Popular People Do Popular People”. You can listen to it here. Woop woop! :


If you’d prefer to listen to it on our bandcamp page, you can do that too (either or both, whatever tickles your fancy):


Here’s a cute picture of an otter, because I can post whatever image I want and I think an otter would be nice *grin*


Gig, single release and LP re-issue

We’re pretty excited to be playing out first gig of 2016, with a new bassist and drummer no less (Benton Glassey on bass and Ben Morton on drums). We’ll be playing songs from the soon be released 2nd album too. Oh the anticipation!

In other news, we had the world premiere of a single from the new album. “Popular People” is the 1st single from our 2nd album “The Wonderful Shapes of Back Door Keys” which is due out in June/July here in NZ and also in the UK/ Europe as a co-release with UK label Occultation Recordings.

Just to confuse everyone, “Popular People Do Popular People” – our 1st album, from which this new single gets its title, is also being ‘re’-issued on LP at the same time as our new album comes out.
