Tidal Rave, Giantess & Solo Ono Wellington Show Announced

Tidal Rave, Giantess & Solo Ono Wellington Show Announced

Chris Cudby / Wednesday 24th June, 2020 10:35AM

One of the best things about gigs ramping up again in Aotearoa is bands finally get to play launch parties for records dropped during lockdown, plus we've had plenty of time to learn all the words so we can sing along too. Although Pōneke's Tidal Rave did squeeze in a Newtown Festival appearance before things went all pear-shaped, they'll at last be celebrating the unveiling of their superb debut album Heart Screams at Moon1 this coming July alongside Giantess, who released their exceptional debut long player Big Woman during lockdown. Those groups will be joined by garage / pop trio Solo Ono, who launched their Rogue Planet EP in 2018, a comfortable distance away from 2020's 'shenanigans'.

Tidal Rave, Giantess & Solo Ono
Saturday 18th July - Moon1, Wellington

Press release:

Lockdown is behind us! Tidal Rave and Giantess have both released their debut albums this year and they are super excited, to play a show together at Moon.

Tidal Rave

'Pōneke six-piece Tidal Rave have at last revealed their debut album Heart Screams, following through on the winning promise of recent singles 'FOMO', 'Dark Wizard' and 'Slow/ Fast'. Showcasing nine garage-pop tunes overflowing with jangly guitars and vintage organ sounds.' - Under the Radar 2020


'Giantess are the band that about two years ago emerged from Hex, stronger than ever. Kiki Van Newtown and Jason Erskine joined Lauren Ellis, on percussion, to create something entirely new that still borrows from all that made Hex so good.' Emily Writes - The Spinoff 2020

Solo Ono

The casual garage/pop three piece has released an album and two EPs and has supported the likes of the Chills and She’s So Rad.
