The Knee High Socks - EP Review: The Knee High Socks

21 Dec 2017 // A review by Kerry Monaghan

The Knee High Socks are an Auckland high school quartet that formed in 2015.

Their sound is self-confessed indie, ‘math rock’, but not exactly pop, and they have just released their first self-titled EP.

The band has a lot of potential with clever lyrical ability and a soft, almost spoken vocal style that suits the more indie sound they deliver. Their sound is at times raw and could use a little fine tuning, but that will come with more experience as they grow into their sound.

They shape up to be well rounded musicians despite their young years, and it will be interesting to hear their sound in a year's time and see how it has evolved.

Thousand Limbs - EP Review: Mara
19 Apr 2020 // by Kerry Monaghan
Thousand Limbs is an Auckland instrumental Metal/Doom quartet that formed in 2016. Very quickly, you’ll find they take you on a journey without ever leaving the house, which is about as good as it gets in these trying times.

Antebellum - Album Review: Sovereignty
01 Apr 2020 // by Kerry Monaghan
Antebellum are a three piece, metal infused rock band from Tauranga. This is their debut album, Sovereignty, and it’s clear they have a lot to say for a band with no vocalist (that we know of), but with no shortage of really cool riffs and insane talent.

Gravel Pit - EP Review: Black Arts
25 Feb 2020 // by Kerry Monaghan
Gravel Pit are a four piece assault of adrenaline, intensity and speed, but if you thought they were just another hardcore punk band, you need to take another listen. They formed in 2018, having released their debut EP the same year and they hail from Wellington which is definitely a great thing.
