Gig Information

False Heights The January Tour - 11th January 2024 - After a massive 2023 and a new single dropping on the 25th of Jan, the Taupō based duo are kicking off 2024 with their first ever Auckland headline gig (full band) on their summer mini tour, with support from Bird Machine.

A Little bit More about FALSE HEIGHTS:

There are no false promises with False Heights. Hailing from Taupō, New Zealand,
this quirky pop-punk duo are a “symphony of music” (Stuff NZ) who bring a theatrical
alternative edge to the mainstream world, and call listeners to raise their drinks high and
celebrate that it’s okay not to be okay.

Ashley and April Pirie are the tight knit couple behind False Heights, an act born
amidst a living room crisis in 2016 where Ashley’s musical backing came to April’s rescue for an unexpected festival booking. The pair share a charismatic vocal interplay, and musical talents across drums, keys and bass guitar. Their material offers a uniquely independent feel, melding the 2000s rock sound of Jimmy Eat World and Blink-182 to the commercial singer-songwriter energies of Taylor Swift and Paramore.

In the studio, False Heights are a duo, but their live performances range from loop
pedal-focused sets to an expanded band. Their fierce, high-energy shows have seen them open for acts like Pat Benatar and ZZ Top, as well as take the stage of major festivals including Rhythm and Vines and Sanctuary Sounds.

A Little Bit More about BIRD MACHINE:

Late in 2021, husband and wife Jenna and Luke Grbin found out they could write music together. Discovering how to converge their distinct musical sensibilities has led to a torrent of songs and the development of a signature, dreamy rock and pop aesthetic. Bird Machine listeners can hear a love for 80s underground subgenres, for the alt-rock revolution of the 90s, and for singer-songwriter poignance. Everything is bound together with a healthy dose of pop melodicism, as well as lyrics both commentative and introspective. Adopting a D.I.Y. ethos, Bird Machine do pretty much everything themselves, writing, performing, recording, and producing their music in their home studio in the New Zealand suburbs.
