“Lately Auckland seems to be spewing out mod bands like they were going out of style (which they are/ have). The Newmatics are good because they transcend the “mod” tag. There are elements of that in their music, of course, but they have an intuitive grasp of ska and reggae the likes of which I’ve never heard in a white New Zealand band. Add to this a raw edge drawn from punk, and you have a winning combination that could knock spots off any other band currently working in New Zealand.”
