This Silent Divide meld driving drums, wall-of-guitar riffs and melodic overtones. The Wellington band are itching to get back on stage and debut some brand new songs following the release of their Tall Stories EP in late 2021, which features the radio singles Lucinda and Don’t Give Up. Tall Stories is available on all major streaming platforms.

Adult Friends is a group of macabre obsessed youth. Despite coming from differing backgrounds, the gang of four clash with an abrasive sound which defies the standards of New Zealand post-punk. Emerging from the Wellington scene of myriad identities, Adult Friends work relentlessly to carve their own. The name Adult Friends is inspired by long-time inspiration, XIU XIU. Other influences include The Cure, Sonic Youth, Placebo, My Bloody Valentine and Interpol.

Dash Ripshaw are a band operating out of Wellington, New Zealand. Quirky pop melodies sit over pumping bass lines, laden (of course) with quirky guitars and solid drums. The four lads from Whanganui-a-Tara (well, to be precise, only one is, the others hail from Peru, Scotland and the Hutt Valley) strive to write zany but catchy tunes. Born from break up, nurtured and raised in the depths of a warehouse. Dash Ripshaw bring the quirk with their indie alt-pop melodies. Catch their new single ‘Diane’ on Spotify.
