Welcome to Flying Nun News. Here you will find interesting music news. Not just about the record label Flying Nun, but also other Aotearoa New Zealand artists, topics and people who we like and think are interesting. Please read on.
The NZ On Air Music-funded visual for Move Me finds Jazmine Mary with company, indulging in some form of pastoral psychedelia.
Violet Hirst is a new Pōneke artist who performs both solo and also with a band. A few weeks ago she dropped by the Flying Nun shop to play us a few tunes. The dark, haunting and sparse arrangement of her song 'Please Write Home' reminded us a little bit of the music on the first Aldous Harding album. Not a bad thing!
A wanderer encounters an empty, almost haunting, School of Design. What does she find? In her latest forensic reading, Claire Mabey examines Tiny Ruins' School Of Design - a story of instincts, institutions, and time behaving strangely
Mystery Waitress are a band who have been playing gigs regularly around Wellington. They first came to our attention when someone with good taste mentioned their EP was worth a listen and that Tessa had a unique voice. We soon found ourselves listening to the EP on high rotate.
The video footage was taken from Reb's shows at the Mercury Theatre, on her sold out album tour of 2020.
Plus, watch the new music video for the single, in which Asta Rangu’s Richard Ley-Hamilton takes you on a lightning tour of some of his favourite spots around his hometown of Dunedin.
Heave Ho! storms in with blistering bass, that's quickly followed by splintered guitar, crunchy synths and whacked out drums. The post-punk protestation is grounded by Brown’s voice, standing off to one side, back against the wall.
We're continuing the Flying Nun birthday tradition with two monster extravaganzas in Auckland and Wellington - multiple stages, a mix of established artists, new artists, and plenty in-between - a record store and all kinds of other stuff. Aldous Harding, Straitjacket Fits, Reb Fountain, The Bats and many more.
Liam Finn last released a solo album in 2014 when he dropped The Nihilist. He is set to change that in 2021, with an innovative project that sees him recording the album live in front of an audience.
