National Sensation Autumn Tour Announced

Chris Cudby / Thursday 29th February, 2024 10:46AM

Drawing comparisons with such diverse talents as Kate Bush, Bjork, Jefferson Airplane, The Phoenix Foundation, Florence And The Machine and The Top Twins, "kiwiana-indie-folk-rock-alternative-pop" songwriters Mike Robinson and Charlotte Shade aka National Sensation will be manifesting their namesake on a five date tour this coming autumn. Warming up with a renegade room set at last week's Camp A Low Hum festival, they'll be joined by percussionists Jesse Kearse and Rupert Snook for headline dates in Pōneke, Greytown, Petone, Whanganui and Paekākāriki. So confident you'll have a great time they're offering a "FULL MONEY BACK GUARANTEE if you don’t enjoy the show" (official details below), National Sensation have been drip-feeding us intriguing DIY demos of tunes filmed in their windy city-based HQ. Get ahead of the pack and experience National Sensation playing across the lower North Island at the following Fridays...

Press release:

Wellington based duo NATIONAL SENSATION is coming to a local near you* in April and May this year with their unique blend of kiwiana-indie-folk-rock-alternative-pop music.

Fresh off the Renegade stage at Camp A Low Hum, NATIONAL SENSATION is beginning to garner critical acclaim.**

They’ve been compared to Kate Bush, Bjork, Devendra Banhart, Jefferson Airplane, The Phoenix Foundation, Florence and the Machine, London Grammar, The Top Twins and various other bands that they are trying really hard to rip off without infringing on copyright.

For this tour, NATIONAL SENSATION (Mike Robinson and Charlotte Shade) will join forces with percussion maestros Jesse Kearse and Rupert Snook, bringing a bigger sound than ever before.

But wait there’s more!!! NATIONAL SENSATION is offering you a FULL MONEY BACK GUARANTEE if you don’t enjoy the show.***

*near you if you live in the lower North Island **from mates/mums ***just pop up after the gig, look us in the eyes and tell us exactly why you weren’t satisfied
