Gig Information

Street Chant are celebrating the release of their long awaited sophomore album Hauora with shows across the country this April.

Hauora is that rarest of sophomore efforts; an album that continues a pre-existing trajectory without resorting to repetition or routine. Given that its name is taken from the Māori word for the four aspects of personal health – spiritual, physical, mental and social – it’s fitting that Hauora plays like an exorcism of sorts. There’s catharsis palpable throughout, while Emily Edrosa’s pervasive optimism and energetic wit brings the album’s intense energy full circle.

Though the band’s composition has gone through some changes since Means – while Edrosa and bassist Billie Rogers remain, drummer Alex Brown was replaced by Chris Varnham (Wilberforces) post-recording – their modus operandi remains progressive and active as ever. Over a choppily-strummed acoustic guitar, Edrosa closes the album on ‘Hauora Forever’ by stating plainly, tongue ever-so-slightly in cheek, “If every day was a Sunday / I’d forget to be depressed”. It’s apparent that with the release of Hauora, Street Chant have little to be sad about.

Street Chant’s Hauora is to be released 1st April 2016 on Flying Nun. The band are taking their new songs on the road to celebrate Hauora's release this April. See below for dates.
