I lived in New Zealand for a few years and the thing that I’ve taken away (apart from the memories of blue skies and and beautiful beaches) is their brilliant music. The music ‘scene’ in Wellington is super strong with kiwi bands touring all the time so you can always catch a gig in a small venue with brilliant musicians.
One of my favourite bands was Connan and the Mockasins, a cute little 3 piece that wooooed you with their spooky electro weirdness (in a good way!). So…. its nice to see Connan popping up on Nowness with his new solo record. Admittedly he’s always had a great reception in the UK but this is a good excuse to play you his new record.
