Mishap - Single Review: Hey, Allie!

04 Aug 2017 // A review by butch181
Mishap's latest release Hey, Allie! is the best definition of pop punk; minimal lyrics, with a lot of repetition, with a simple chord progression and standard timing. While those things could be considered negative things by some when you're looking at technical musicianship, in a pop punk setting, this is the ideal product. It follows the general formula to create what ends up being a very upbeat and catchy track. With only six unique lines of lyrics in the songs, it would be very simple for a live crowd to sing along with (FYI Fact: The repeated name "Allie" constitutes approximately 28% of the lyrics).

There is a lot of pop punk influence that can be heard in this track, most notably that of Green Day, with Isaac Lundy and Datu Beech's combined vocals having similarities to that of Billy Joe Armstrong. The clear, crisp style gives Mishap a fresh sound that is pleasing to the ears, and will no doubt take the band far if they continue to push forward.

About Mishap

Mishap are a pop-punk trio from Wellington, formed in March 2016. They have a style that is somewhere between the simple, raw sound of 90s Green Day and Blink-182 and the tight, modern sound of bands such as The Story So Far, Neck Deep and State Champs.

In 2016, Mishap released their debut EP, Toaster with most popular tracks being Hey Allie and The Scrumpy Song. On these songs, Mishap have made a name for themselves among the New Zealand rock community, touring exhaustively around the North Island.

For Mishap, 2017 held the release of their second EP, Not Feeling This, two fully funded music videos and touring with pop punk pals Fire For Glory, Braves, Lookin Up, Barracks and heaps of other rad bands! Their first (professional) music video was released on the 16th of March for their single/title track of Not Feeling This.

Stray Theories - Album Review: All That Was Lost
18 May 2018 // by butch181
This album opens with How Long, and almost displays itself like a tease. A slow burning track that lifts in volume ever so tenderly that you have to fight the urge to increase the volume yourself.

Album Review: Dick Tracy
07 May 2018 // by butch181
Dick Tracy have an exciting style of music, combining heavy rock with blues. The style could be compared to Beastwar’s Matt Hyde or King Cannons' Luke Yeoward singing for Skinny Hobos.

Three Feathers - Single Review: Know It Well
07 May 2018 // by butch181
Indie duo Three Feathers have a soothing gentleness and retro vibe that would generally get their style labelled as “stoner rock”. While there are definitely similarities to the genre, many do look down upon the “stoner” moniker, so instead let’s describe it differently.

Off from Auckland’s Hillsborough Road, if you can find the sign for Delargey Ave within the trees that line the roadway, you may come across the Pah Homestead. A historic home that houses the James Wallace Art Trust’s collection of New Zealand Art, and on Sundays is also the home of a mini-concert series.

False Heights - EP Review: No? Who...?
24 Apr 2018 // by butch181
Starting the EP off, In My Memory, begins with some light piano chords and delicate vocals from April Nisbet. With an incredible short vocal hook of a “chorus”, and layers of harmonies and additional backing vocals, the audial performance is so captivating that the gradual addition of instrumentation is almost not noticed until the end of the track.
