Family Band Unleash Single 'Spit'

Currently number one on the 95bFM Top Ten with their first single 'Large Dirt Piles', Family Band regale our earholes with new anthem 'Spit' before the Tāmaki Makaurau post-punk collective's debut album The Dog Box drops on 30th April via Sunreturn. Initially reminding these ears of the more jagged segments of The Gordons' back catalogue (or Wax Chattels in clenched-teeth mode), the closing second half of 'Spit' hones in and locks down on repetitive riff fury — a killer extended finishing move recalling very early Lightning Bolt / Load Records in its techno-like monomania. Here's hoping the song squalls even longer when Sam Shepherd, Maté Vella and Brandee Thorburn hit the stage at Whammy Bar tonight, with Video Nasty and Chlorine...

Thursday 21st March - Whammy Bar, Auckland

"I wrote the song as a tribute to the terrible landlord of my old cafe. One time she walked past a literal hole in the wall to complain about some dust on the window sill... This is kind of the most structurally normal song we have so I hope people will like that. Having two songs out is really great, I'm excited for people to hear the rest of the EP!" — Maté Vella

'The Dox Box' is out on Tuesday 30th April via Sunreturn.
