Tour Information

From humble beginnings in a small flat in Auckland, New Zealand, comes a seven piece collaboration. Mice On Stilts is a band that traverses genre distinctions to create their own sound, described by one reviewer as “a sombre, subtle and slow-to-grow opus that virtually exudes a cinematic aura others of their kind often only allude to.”

From these ominous beginnings, the track builds, slowly but majestically. The drums come in, chords hang like echoes in the rafters of a cathedral, and I think of a word not often uttered when describing New Zealand music: epic. - RNZ

The music billows past on clouds of austere beauty, a widescreen vista of shades of sadness that make the album a compelling mood-piece. - Metro Magazine


King of the Sadboys are brothers Sam and Hamish Ogilvie, Tim Burrows and Sean Timlin. the sadboys debut ep ‘soft drugs’ was released on 13 July 2018, and have since been performing live and conjuring up their next batch of songs. the sadboys share a common love for harmonies and lush arrangements.


Gitbox Rebellion's ten members play only acoustic guitars.The name proclaims the musical manifesto GITBOX being pigeon for guitar, the REBELLION is against the constraints of its own blues rock tradition.

(Gitbox Rebellion) ...the group played with a discipline and rapport that would be the envy of any classical chamber orchestra. In sum, Gitbox Rebellion provide stimulating, intelligent, and above approachable music that will ensure them a steady following
