Pōneke/ Wellington jangle / surf / fuzz-pop sextet Tidal Rave return with a new single “Banana” ahead of the launch of their snazzily titled “Albumette” following up their 2020 album “Heart Screams”.
"Banana" contemplates the enjoyment of the banana as a convenient and nourishing food, while also pondering ethical dilemmas about exploitative labour practices by large multi-national banana growers, expressing the pleasure/ guilt dilemma of western consumption that many of us grapple with.

This EP from Fazerdaze (Amelia Murray) is unfussy DIY indie-pop perfection. Part pure melodic pop, part beautiful weary existential sigh with a hint of early Jesus & Mary Chain, fuzz & reverb tamed. Fishrider Records
A glorious album of dark alternative country-folk. Fairlight’s ageless voice simultaneously beautiful and terrifying, possessed of a resonant vibrato and smooth and tough as weathered teak. Fishrider Records
