Interview: Sherpa

Friday 16th May, 2014 10:06AM

In 2012, Sherpa released their debut album Lesser Flamingo to critical acclaim, despite hitting a bump in the road with their former record label Muzai. Two years on, the psychedelic pop four-piece still have no solid label or management, but they haven't let that stop them from following up that fantastic first effort with today's release of new album Blues and Oranges. The record was laid down with the help of a lot of vintage gear and the know-how of Kody Neilson (The Mint Chicks, Opossom), which helped capture a variety of sounds and "lots of light and shade", according to frontman Earl Ho.

To coincide with the unveiling of the album, the group are heading on the road to tour the country, and the day after the final show in Christchurch, Ho will be flying out to London to start a new adventure there. We caught up with the singer to have a chat about his new-found love of recording and he walks us through a few of the new tracks.
