New Zealand fuzz trio Na Noise — in cahoots with NSW imprint Third Eye Stimuli — are taking their first plane ride across the ditch and are thrilled to be sharing their lo-fi pop songs with Australian audiences.
Na Noise are the Thelma & Louise of modern DIY guitar-based music. The long-time collaborators Hariet Ellis and Yolanda Fagan have a rascally take on traditional song — with their new-old songs, the band introduce a new-old sound. Joined by multi-instrumentalist Christopher Varnham who provides organ, drums and percussive elements, the three have cultivated a dark sound that is more playful than it is psychedelic. Born and raised in the heart of Karangahape Road's music venue culture, Na Noise is a band rooted deeply in their community. The sonic lovechild of Hariet Ellis, Yolanda Fagan, and Christopher Varnham, the band's sound has grown and morphed over the past few years of playing as a tight-knit three piece.
Describing their debut album, 'Waiting For You' as a 'stitching of sonic palettes,' the band wears their influences on their sleeve. Paying homage to the likes of Ian Svenonius and '60s R&B girl group vocals, Na Noise aren't afraid to bring powerful components of different genres together.
Na Noise's 'Waiting For You' won the band the coveted Best Independent Debut award at the Taite Music Prize in 2021 and saw the trio named as 'Best Alternative Artist' at the 2021 Aotearoa Music Awards. Na Noise takes audiences on a journey of fuzz, dance, clever vocal arranging and drum machine glory.
The band are hitting the dusty Australian trail in September — visiting Brisbane, Wollongong, Sydney, and Melbourne along the way. Check out dates below and grab your ticket now!
