Gig Information

Grawlixes celebrate their sophomore album with a 12 date headline tour this July/August. The twelve shows will see Grawlixes perform across Aotearoa, captivating audiences with a dynamic set ranging from floating atmospheric ballads to spine-tingling rock.

The singles from the album have already achieved great heights. 'Honey Bees' reached #1 on the NZ Student Radio Network chart and at #4 on the NZ Radioscope Alternative Airplay Chart.
The following two singles, 'City Across the Bay' & 'Dalliance,' made it to Apple Music's New Music Daily (there is only a .34 or 1 in 300 chance of making it to the list once, so twice is pretty special).

“Within 90 seconds of Honey Bees I was enthralled, and immediately felt that this was why I review, as every so often something comes through which is so very special indeed that it has a major impact on me. This is one of those albums, and from the very beginning I knew this was significant, and that feeling kept growing as the album kept playing….It is timeless….They are soon going to be undertaking a 12-date tour, which on the evidence of this is not to be missed, as this is something which will be enjoyed by lovers of folk, country, acoustic, singer/songwriter material. Simply essential” Kev Rowland,

Grawlixes are an existential folk-pop band who will sear themselves in your brain with raw, wry and infectious songs about doomed relationships, not being invited to parties, and wanting to murder each other, featuring Robin Cederman on guitar (The Prophet Hens), Penelope Esplin on accordion (French for Rabbits), Alex Vaastra on violin (Julian Temple Band, Emily Fairlight), Emma Hattaway on bass (BoJack Funkman) and Hikurangi Schaverien-Kaa on drums (Dawn Diver, French for Rabbits).

Grawlixes signed to Home Alone records, following an extensive European tour supporting now label-mates French for Rabbits, throughout Switzerland, England, Germany and France. They released their debut album ‘Set Free’ in July 2017 to critical acclaim, reaching #9 in the NZ Album Charts.

Love You To Death was released on July 15 on Home Alone Records.
The phenomenal album was recorded with Lee Prebble at The Surgery, in Wellington (L.A.B, Black Seeds, Trinity Roots) and mixed with producer Tom Healy (Julia Jacklin, Tiny Ruins, Finn Andrews) and mastered by Paul Gold of Salt Mastering in Brooklyn, New York (Sufjan Stevens, Grizzly Bear, Dirty Projectors).

Vatican't are a Wellington twee-pop band who combine obtuse harmony and polysyllabic effusion into something ... very good, actually. Formed in 2021, their rhymes are sweet, their wryly charming, and quirky songs are neat. With comparisons to Pinback, American Analog Set, The Shins and No Vacation, they're worth seeing before they get outrageously popular.

Violet Hirst started her music career in her hometown of Queenstown, playing the local venues every so often but truly found her sound in the capital, Wellington. With songs that are sung in a purple haze while staring at the mountains, Violet’s music draws influence from the mountains that surround her, the love shown by her parents and the most hidden notes from her diary.
With her debut Sabine we explore a foreign love and a fairytale romance inspired by Nick Bantock’s art-book series ‘Griffin & Sabine’. Let the music teleport you to a field of long flowing grass as you gaze over the horizon.
