Looking For Alaska and In The Shallows Spring Tour Announced

C.C. / Wednesday 3rd August, 2022 12:12PM

Aotearoa songwriting duos Looking For Alaska and In The Shallows are teaming up for an extensive spring tour of our beautiful nation, performing together from mid-August all the way up to 5th November. The country / soul / folk project of Kirikiriroa's Aaron Gott and Amy Maynard, Looking For Alaska's self-titled debut record earned them a finalist placing for the 2017 Auckland Live Best Independent Debut Album award, with last year seeing the launch of new long player Light and Shadow. Kapiti-based duo In The Shallows, aka Danni Parsons and Lance Shepherd, haven't stopped creating since unveiling their self-titled 2020 debut album, releasing in 2021 their anti-conflict anthem 'Let's Not Start A War' and the sunny melodies of December's 'There You Are'. Lovers of local songcraft certainly won't have far to travel to catch this intimate double-headline pairing, travelling to a venue near you this spring...

Press release:

Hamilton duo Looking For Alaska and Wellington duo In The Shallows are excited to announce that they will be joining forces for a 2022 spring tour!

Two accomplished groups in their own right, they will be taking to the road together from August - November to visit some of their favourite venues around the country and share their songs and stories, joined by a full band at their Auckland and Wellington shows.

Looking For Alaska are a duo from Hamilton, New Zealand. Drawing from a diverse range of country, soul, folk and Maōri influences, Aaron and Amy perform hard hitting original music, their songs inspired by their life and travels; complete with exquisite harmonies and acoustic guitar that both whispers and roars. The duo's familiarity, closeness and authenticity is fuelled by their real-life romance, creating a magnetic performance style that captivates their audience time and time again, and has seen them open for the likes of Fly My Pretties, Herbs and Tiny Ruins, and perform all around NZ and the world.

In The Shallows are a Kapiti based Indie-Pop band offering up an exquisitely silken sound that weaves together soaring harmonies, mesmerising vocals with a ‘velvety and gentle timbre’, acoustic guitars with relatable and introspective lyrics about intricate tales of love, loss, connection, redemption and empowerment. Their debut album and many of their latest singles have received glowing 5* reviews and they were voted into the 'Top 10 Live shows of 2021' list by Kev Rowland of Muzic.net.nz.
