Never Seen Street Chant's Insides
Auckland trio Street Chant have just released new LP Hauora through esteemed label Flying Nun Records. The first single off it is 'Insides', a particularly scrappy nihilistic punk blast that is reminiscent of other NZ bands like Transistors and Die! Die! Die! It even gives space for some guitar solo esoterics. The flip side of the Street Chant sound is showcased on 'Never', a "golden oldie" that's been buffed up and spitwashed, a shimmering song about wanting things to roll your way that evokes the more obvious Kiwi indie histrionics. An exciting band that has been quiet for far too long. You can pick up Hauora here.
