Gig Information

Local indie favourites ECHO CHILDREN celebrate the vinyl release of their sophomore EP ‘Toxic Happiness’ with a party at Tāmaki Makaurau’s one and only WHAMMY BACKROOM.
Don't miss this chance to catch the band's psychedelic pop harmonies and sharp alt-country songwriting in one of Auckland's most intimate and lively club venues.

They will be supported by rising jangle-pop heroes COWBOY DAN, who are riding on a wave of great reviews since the release of their new EP ‘Sentimental Now That We're Leaving’. Their emotive style of indie rock will have the dance floor swinging and hearts a-swooning.

About Toxic Happiness 12-Inch Vinyl
Tāmaki Makaurau's Echo Children return with their sophomore EP ‘Toxic Happiness’, pressed to vinyl in this first edition, limited to 100 copies. The pressing includes bonus tracks Dust Bowl and Volcanoes, which were recorded during the Toxic Happiness sessions, and have long been favourites in Echo Children's live shows.

Oliver Young's sharp alt-country songwriting shines throughout the track list, backed by the band's haunting psychedelic-pop harmonies. Building on their 2017 release ‘This Was Our Fault’, the three-piece have honed their sound with help from engineer and producer Vivek Gabriel. Niamh O'Flynn and Amanda Larsson drive the songs forward with a dose of indie flare on the drums and bass guitar, on top of which Young's reverb-soaked guitars and the trio's vocals are given space to shine. Lead singles ‘Flowerbeds’ and ‘Our Parents Fixed It All’ received glowing reviews in local media, with declaring them ‘beguiling... bitter-sweet... as alluring as they are elusive to define’.

The first edition 12-inch pressing will be available at the gig and all good NZ record stores, distributed by Flying Out.
