Interview: The River Jones

Experimental punk four-piece The River Jones have been active in the Christchurch music scene for a few years now. When they first started playing together fresh out of high school, the group's guitarist Hunter Jackson was only 17-years-old and had to stand outside bars during the band's soundchecks for gigs later that evening. Nowadays all the members are of legal drinking age and the band has a whole swag of accomplishments, including releasing a self-titled debut album last year and the recently revealed video for their single 'Steady Vision'.
