Music News - Tomorrow People hit #1 with new EP 'BBQ Reggae'

Tomorrow People hit #1 with new EP 'BBQ Reggae'

06 February 2018 - 0 Comments

Congratulations to Tomorrow People, whose new EP BBQ Reggae debuted at #1 in the Official NZ Music Charts on Friday.

The Wellington collective released their EP exclusively at the One Love Festival on January 27, before its official digital release on January 29.

Tomorrow People (made up of Marcus Abraham, Ken Saupese, Hamo Dell, Avina Kelekolio, Duane Te Whetu, Dan Sugrue and Tana Tupai) are one of New Zealand’s most-loved reggae bands, known for their unique ‘sunshine reggae’ sound.

The EP title, BBQ Reggae, is a tongue-and-cheek reference to a controversial article that was published a few years ago.

"Our music was once labelled BBQ Reggae in kind of a negative way,” says the band. “But Kiwis love a good BBQ and we are absolutely thrilled to represent the reggae community in hitting number one with this EP. It’s a clear sign that this genre is a big part of Kiwi culture."

The eight-track EP includes the lead single Lock Me Up, which was played on Top 40 radio and is currently in NZ’s Top 100 airplay chart and the urban chart. It also includes the current single Don’t Wanna Fight It - watch the video here - which Tomorrow People released in English, Te Reo Māori and Samoan, as a nod to the cultural diversity of the band and their fans.
