Flying Out and 95bFM are proud to present The Others Way on August 31 2018.

For the fourth year running, Auckland’s Karangahape Road is set to metamorphose into an oasis of fresh, unique local music, from indie to electronica, hip-hop to pop and much more…

Celebrating the best in alternative music from across the country (and a few from over the Tasman), every year The Others Way constantly features a dynamic selection of artists performing across a number of favoured K Road venues.

With 2018 promising to be another night to remember, we are proud to unveil the first line up;

Bailterspace

Once referred to as "the Sonic Youth of the Southern Hemisphere", this iconic NZ atmospheric noise-rock band are reforming again and returning home for the show, promising plenty from their extensive catalogue and some exciting new songs to boot.

The Beths

The Auckland four-piece's latest single Happy Unhappy was announced the Song of the Summer according to Rolling Stone, so what better band to have to see us through the end of winter. Recently signed to US label Carpark Records, their new album Future Me Hates Me is due outAugust 10.

Chapter Music Stage

They are one of our favourite independent Australian labels, and this year will see The Goon Sax, Gregor, Laura Jean and label co-founder Guy Blackman making their way across for a Chapter Music curated stage. Laura Jean is one upcoming artist to watch, with her recent synth-pop album Devotion picking up rave reviews and Pitchfork describing life-affirming second single Girls On the TV as “a pop song promise that things will eventually get better.” Brisbane indie-pop trio The Goon Sax (featuring frontman Louis Forster, son of Robert Foster from the Go-Betweens) are set to release their new album, We're Not Talking on September 14 and will be playing NZ for the first time.

Church & AP

This teenage hip-hop duo have been making waves in Auckland, recently receiving high praise from the likes of David Dallas and SWIDT. They've just dropped their impressive debut EP Thorough Bread.

Collision

Marking their first performance in 40 years iconic 1970s NZ funk band, Collision return to the stage having recently featured on the fantastic Heed The Call compilation album, they are guaranteed to bring funk, soul, and groove in spades.

Die! Die! Die!

NZ's pop/punk/post-punk darlings are back in town with former bassist Lachlan Anderson in tow, following on from their scintillating set at this year's Laneway Festival the three-piece will be playing tracks from their full discography and some new numbers ahead of recording album number seven.

Estère

Wellington's Estère punctuates meaty electronic beats with an elastic voice and punchy melodies and is bringing her dynamic three-piece band and strange brand of Electric Blue Witch-Hop to the stage.

The Headless Chickens

Playing a set to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of their album Stunt Clown (which also won this year's Taite Music Prize Classic Album Award) the Headless Chickens have reunited for this show, which will be a fitting ribute to their recently departed friend and bandmate Grant Fell. Performing on the night will be Chris Matthews, Anthony Nevison, Michael Lawry, Fiona McDonald, Bevan Sweeney and Rupert E. Taylor.

Melodownz

Melodownz hip hop lyricist (Bronson Price), is an urban poet and artist raised in the phone line tangled urban village of Avondale, Auckland, New Zealand. He traverses backdrops of boom bap, g funk, reggae, soul and hip hop with ease, dropping nuggets of wisdom, synonyms and analytical versification. From feel good partay vibes that will keep your head nodding to pre-tinder date jitters, or an epic song for a local boxer as he enters the ring, musically, Melodownz has you covered.

Superette

Part of Flying Nun's 90's wave of new bands, Superette stood out for their playful sense of melody and propelling driving rhythms. Fronted by David Mulcahy of JPSE, and joined by Ben Howe and Greta Anderson, the three piece return ahead of the expanded reissue of their album Tiger.

Wax Chattels

After an extraordinary performance at TOW last year saw them signed to Captured Tracks and Flying Nun and secured them a spot at Laneway, how could we not, NOT have them back? Currently winning over fans across the US, this three piece are back in NZ bringing with them their darkly hypnotic guitarless guitar music.

Also featuring on the line up are local favourites Hopetoun Brown, Miss June and Mulhollandand Wellington's Girl Boss & HansPucket. While Dunedin's Soaked Oats and Death and the Maiden are also travelling up to join in the fun and with more acts to be announced, stay tuned for the second line-up and more details soon.

Anthonie Tonnon

With two highly acclaimed albums under his belt, plus the release of his recent single and EP Two Free Hands, Anthony Tonnon brings an eccentric show, combining traditional and electronic musicianship and a surreal sense of storytelling and physical movement.

 

d. Tyrone & k2k
After becoming best friends over 3 years ago, Katherine (k2k) and Dirk (d. Tyrone) have been throwing dance parties together all across Aotearoa. This very special, back-to-back DJ session is inspired by Dirk and Katherine's shared love of ripping techno, dog memes, bumping house rhythms and bees. Bring a towel; it's gonna be hot!

Bene
From Grey Lynn via Morningside, 18-year-old Bene arrives at The Others Way with a hot band in tow and a killer set of songs that mix indie-slack fun with a little r’n’b swing. AND a voice to die for.

Elroy
You may have caught his on-stage appearances alongside his father Neil Finn and brother Liam Finn, or behind the drums for Wild Nothing, and now Elroy presents his own with his delectable blend of melodic guitar pop. Elroy will be joined on-stage with his full band, performing tracks from his upcoming debut album.

Eno X Dirty
Hip-hop artists Eno x Dirty are well known for bringing the party to venues throughout Auckland, their recent and highly anticipated debut album Evil Adventures & Happy Endings received high praise and features the duo busting out their patented social commentaries over smokin' beats.

High Beams
Born out of friendship, shared thoughts on life’s polar dichotomies, the unspoken politics of social resistance, and the importance of celebrating your successes, High Beams is the hip-hop super-group of IllbazMelodownz and Raiza Biza. High Beams recently released their highly acclaimed debut self-titled album and have been touring the country, spitting rhymes over jazz and soul-inflected beats.

Josie Moon
21-year-old singer-songwriter Josie Moon hails from Wellington, with a hypnotic and nostalgic approach to electronic pop music. Her upcoming debut EP Rose Tinted, with new collaborator Nik Brinkman, is set to be released at the end of the month.

Purple Pilgrims
Psychic sisterhood and wistful wanderlust are the twin energies feeding lush ceremonial dream-pop duo Purple Pilgrims. the duo's appeal is far-ranging, with The Guardian referring to their debut album Eternal Delight as "ghostly, hazy, ethereal, mystical, angelic, spectral, sensual."

Polyester
Polyester makes pop songs charged with emotion - blending pop hooks with 80’s synths, sparkling guitars, and Chic-inspired disco grooves. The Auckland five-piece have had a bumper year, playing Laneway 2018, touring NZ, and releasing their self-titled debut album.

Friendly Potential's TOW Afterparty with DJ JNETT
Friendly Potential is bringing DJ JNETT out to play at Neck of the Woods to end this night of all nights! A Melbourne native, Janette Pitruzzellohas been spinning and winning in Melbourne since the early 90s. Her boundless crates of wax span seamlessly throughout deep house, techno, funk, soul, disco, dub, reggae, and hip-hop.

Also joining the second line-up will be Wellington's Bad Friend, Christchurch art-popper French Concession, and local acts Green Grove, Kraus, Drorgon, Dead Little Penny, TOOMS, along with the new Jonathan Crayford/Julien Dyne duo Two Farben.
