The Best New Zealand bands and singers
Flying Nun has a long, proud tradition of providing a platform for the best emerging New Zealand bands and artists. For us, it all started back in 1981 with renowned indie band The Clean, who famously went on to pioneer the Dunedin Sound. From there, the rest is history.
Today you’ll find a great selection of new and emerging NZ bands and singers – from Reb Fountain to the Chills, Lawrence Arabia, the Troy King , Tami Neilson, The Beths and Yumi Zouma, even through to the good old classics like Split Enz and the Finn Brothers.
We also have a collection of merch to celebrate some of these bands, with the best band t-shirts and gifts going round for the seasoned music-lover. This includes hoodies, tote bags, sweatshirts, hats, beanies, record slipmats, socks, mugs and much, much more. From time to time, our collection also includes classic album reissues – great collector’s items of your old favourites.
Looking for the next hot tip? Our staff are all regulars on the music scene and some are artists themselves. We love talking all things music, and we’ll help you out with our insider picks and recommendations.
