Listen: Anthony Sheehan-Drent - You'll Do For NowTuesday 21st July, 2015 12:27PM
Anthony Sheehan-Drent, who is perhaps best recognised for his role in Auckland alt trio Civil Union, has unveiled a raft of punk-tinged experimental folk songs. On his Soundcloud page Sheehan-Drent explains the emergence of the material, which is a distant cry from his work with Civil Union, writing: "a bunch of oldish B sidey stuff from soundcloud that i thought i should get mastered and make something more cohesive out of for posterity". Take a listen to lead track 'You'll Do For Now' below...
And, as a bonus soak up his brilliant cover of 'Virgin Mary', which was popularised by folk legend Joan Baez in the late 1950s...
Civil Union are supporting Lydia Lunch's Retrovirus for their Wellington and Auckland shows next month, head over here for more details.
