Wellington (by-way-of-Dunedin) band Grawlixes embark on a NZ tour in celebration of the release of their first album Set Free. Grawlixes are an indie-folk band who explore romance with dry wit and sharp tongue, crafting infectious songs about relationships and not being invited to parties. Continuing the lineage of artists who bring sadness to their sprightly melodies, Grawlixes music often deals in the melancholy with self-deprecating honesty and beautiful boy-girl harmonies, sung by Robin Cederman and Penelope Esplin.

Having returned from an extensive tour through Europe in 2015, they will be joined by Alex Vaatstra on violin. A recent signee to Home Alone Music, who also play hosts to French For Rabbits, Lake South, Eb & Sparrow and Fraser Ross. Their new album, “Set Free,” will be available for purchase from July 7th.
Grawlixes will be on stage between 4pm-6pm. Tickets from

- Mark Rogers, Radio NZ

'Indeed there is an emotional clarity fuelling these songs both with close harmonies and fine instrumentation.'
- Hamilton News
