Gig Information

Rita Mae is having a release show for her new single Night Drive. The latest lovesick anthem from the Muriwai artist drops 24 February and Rita will be celebrating a week later with a show at Whammy Back Room on Friday 3 March where she will be joined by her band and supported by Molly Payton playing a solo set.

Since turning heads with the release of Candy’s House last year and her skinnyandsoft collab Sunny Afternoon, Rita Mae has played The Others Way, RNV and recently featured on LiveNation’s Ones To Watch and BFM’s Fancy New Band with her single Superfeeling.

The daughter of local legend, the late Jim Laing (The Jean Paul Sartre Experience, Lanky), the 24-year-old had a crack at a career in neuroscience before acknowledging a relentless desire for escapism could be satiated by simply surrendering to it – and letting her insides spill out through songwriting and performance.

Rita describes her latest track Night Drive as being about “those awful in-between relationships, that deep down you know will never work but for some reason you hold on to it anyway”.
