Libbianski Touring Debut Album 'Useless Splendour'

Libbianski Touring Debut Album 'Useless Splendour'

Chris Cudby / Photo credit: Stella Gardiner / Tuesday 9th July, 2024 1:25PM

Libbianski unfurled their own exceptional contribution to Aotearoa's shoegaze / dream-pop canon in April of this year, the swirling, fuzzed-out expanses of the Pōneke collective's debut album Useless Splendour. Recorded by TKO at the capital's The Armoury, then polished off in the US with Chris Johnson (The Electric Bunker) on mixing and Alan Douches (West West Side Music) on mastering duties, it's now time for the four-piece to tour their cacophonous creation — starting in Napier with avant-rockers DESBOT, journeying all around Aotearoa in August and early October. Imbued with a distinctly not-so-quiet sonic majesty, dip your ears into Useless Splendour below, watch the video for single standout 'Too Many Fools, Not Enough Horses' (filmed by Kelly Styles), and experience Mina Perniskie, Kurt Williams, Sam Leamy and Tom LaHatte's live onslaught at the following dates...
