Tour Information
Auckland-based psych-rock quartet Makeshift Parachutes release their full-length debut The Daily Absurd and are touring around New Zealand for it. Come see them perform their homecoming show in St. Kevins Arcade's Whammy Bar.

Taking shape in the group’s A-frame shaped studio (which features in the cover art), the eight track opus collects the dusty remnants of millennial anxiety, surviving the 9-to-5 grind and navigating an unsettling socio-economic time. Forming like a lenticular cloud, each track grows over lush synthesized soundscapes supported by riff-heavy guitar and bass lines from the O’Connor brothers (Sharif O’Connor and Daniel O’Connor). All of this is carried along by the propulsive kit work of Arthur Brewer, while coming to life through the words that escape frontman and lead vocalist Chris McCollum’s glacial vocals.
The Daily Absurd was recorded, mixed and mastered by Olly Harmer at The Lab.

Together, the four-piece project a frenetic live chemistry which they output over the eight track album; a compelling energy they have become well-known for around the Auckland gig scene, where they have packed out venues such as Neck of the Woods and The Wine Cellar.
