Following a significant chunk of this year spent on the down-low, Pōneke "dream-fuzz" crew Transistor are raring to go with not only a fresh five track EP, but also a fistful of January / February tour dates across Aotearoa. Unlocking portals to unknown realms with the brain-melting power of psych-riffs and third-eye expanding, trance-inducing soundscapes, the trio's latest collection Lights Form One To The Sun gathers together three live tunes recorded at Pyramid Club (including a blazing rendition of their 2020 standout single ''Nothing New') with two brand new tracks — unveiled late last week alongside vibey live footage of Transistor playing 'Soft Burning Silver', filmed by Will Agnew and Dan Harris. They'll be joined on their summer sonic journey by regional guests including Na Noise, Ripship, Linen, Ingrid & the Ministers, Mystery Waitress and Bathysphere. Commit the following dates to memory and count the days to the launch of their next single ‘Contextualise’ on 15th January...
