Tāmaki, by way of Ōtepoti post-punks, Die! Die! Die! have today released their highly anticipated seventh studio album This Is Not An Island Anymore. Take a listen:
This Is Not An Island Anymore sees the band displaying their signature sound of powerful and infectious post-punk, noise pop, shoegaze, lo-fi and punk rock. The band's most recent release, the title track and album opener This Is Not An Island Anymore, is, as guitarist/singer Andrew Wilson explains, "about understanding the consequences of our actions and how operating entirely on self-interest will ultimately f**k you up."
Speaking on the meaningfulness of the new record, Wilson says, "this album is really special to all of us. We started this journey when Lachlan (Anderson, bassist) rejoined the band in 2018, and I feel this record ties up a lot of loose ends." He adds: "this is the best reflection of the band and our most honest record."
