New Zealand Artist: Eight
Formed in 1996, Auckland band Eight have been in no rush, instead allowing their music to breathe and take shape over time. This willingness to explore and define their own sound has been rewarded, as Eight's music is both mature and powerfully dynamic. Their songs capture a variety of moods from enveloping rock radio hits to brooding melodic soundscapes.
Although relative new-comers on the wider public radar, Eight have been quietly but firmly establishing their presence on the local music scene. They have independently released three singles in New Zealand to date ('Whale', 'Moments Gone' and 'Shift'), all of which have gained solid sales and received high rotate radio and music television support.
Eight first debuted in the Official New Zealand Top 40 Albums on 14 March 2004 with the album Moving. There is one entry by Eight in the charts.
