So a lot has happened since we last did an update.
We supported the wonderful Delaney Davidson back in September, amongst other memorable performances, and recently performed at The Auckland Folk Festival, which was a fantastic experience.
We have been fairly quiet on the performance front for a reason however – the biggest news is that we’ve spent the last year and a half making a new album!! It’s all very exciting!! We spent a significant amount of time in Lee Prebble’s recording studio (The Surgery) recording bass, drums, clarinets, horns, even a vibraphone. And as a result have recently expanded the live band from our usual team of two or three, into a full band of five (with bass and drums).
We are yet to perform in public as a full band, but if you are in Wellington on the 29th of February, you can see our first full band performance in Home Alone‘s End of Summer Fest (along with other stellar bands such as French for Rabbits, Lake South, Dawn Diver & Ida Lune). Early bird tickets have already sold out, but if you keep an eye out on facebook, you should see an announcement for some additional tickets for those who are quick. Here is the link: Home Alone Summer Fest Info – 29th Feb 2020
In the meantime, here are some flowers and a video of Robin playing the vibraphone for our new album
We’re back in Wellington now, earning money to pay for decadent band-related expenses such as new wiper blades and a reliable guitar tuner. In other highly readable news, When You Motor Away feature our album of their blog today!
Thanks again for supporting us and for keeping us at #14 in the NZ Album Charts waho0o0o0oo0.
And if you haven’t quite managed to buy the album yet it’s available

Not only that, but we’ve had amazing turnouts at our shows – Dunedin was packed to the brim at Dog with Two Tails. Plus we just supported the amazing Steve Gunn in Christchurch last night (at Blue Smoke) and will be supporting him again in Queenstown tonight (at The Sherwood).

Grawlixes have made it down the South Island (through the snow storm) thankfully! A huge thank you to Tim’s Place (& his dog Monster) for being so amazing, and all the lovely people who came out!
