Pōneke alt-rock outfit Same Name Confusion will perform four shows across Aotearoa in support of their new single ESP (Telepathy), out July 17. This is the band’s first release since their debut EP In Theory which included the #1 song of 2019 Must Be Lucky.

ESP (Telepathy) was recorded with James Goldsmith (Mermaidens) at Lee Prebble’s Surgery Studios in a bid to capture the band’s signature live exuberance on record. Lead vocalist Luke Courtney comments on the process:

“I can’t speak highly enough of James. I don’t think he’d made a heap of records similar to what we wanted to do but he’s such a professional; he did an amazing job retaining the energy of our performance. It’s a song that you can really move to; that was one of the changes we wanted to make for this release. We’ve also brought the full band onto the recording this time; with the band comes the excitement that is such a feature of our live shows.”

Same Name Confusion have quickly emerged as one of the most exhilarating live acts in New Zealand. Led Courtney’s off kilter delivery, the band’s theatrical and energetic performances have earnt support slots for Australians Skegss, Lime Cordiale and Spacey Jane as well as appearances at Cubadupa, Cross Street, and Tora Bombora Festivals.

Radio 13 said of their live performance: “It’s raw, energetic and eccentric...Same Name Confusion should be leaders of surreal performances and one not to be missed.”

Indeed this is one not to be missed.
