Pale Lady - Single Review: Never Gonna Be This Way Again

27 Aug 2019 // A review by Jason Peters
Winners of the 2017 National Battle Of The Bands Pale Lady hit us with their latest creation called Never Gonna Be This Way Again. I can see why they won that competition because these young fellas know how to craft a tune and they're all kick ass at their chosen instruments.

This tune has a Green Day/MCR vibe, it’s a high energy number with a catchy chorus that rocks you in all the right places. The video for this track features footage from their recent tour of Australia, Philippines, Hong Kong and Singapore. Youthful on tour fun, shenanigans and rocking out live is on this menu and if this is the main course it will be great to see what these lads serve up for dessert.

If high energy pop/rock punk is your thing then these guys will float your boat, I look forward to hearing a full-length album sometime in the future.

About Pale Lady

Founded in late 2016, Pale Lady consists of four rock fanatics who found themselves in the same music degree. Since then, it has been non stop writing and gigging to bring something new to Rock n Roll. Their music is diverse, with influences both from old school classics and modern rock.

Pale Lady’s sound is characterised by the layered elements and high energy. At a show you can expect to hear catchy vocal melodies, heavy riffs and guitar solos a plenty. Since winning the 2017 National Battle Of The Bands, the band has been working towards upcoming releases. They will bring out new music over the course of 2018, leading up to their Europe tour in August.

Quinn The Human - Album Review: Shade Queen
26 Jul 2019 // by Jason Peters
Following on from their EP Mission Helsinki released in 2018, Quinn The Human release their first full length album Shade Queen and it doesn’t disappoint. A heady mixture of alternative and dessert rock with sprinkles of trademark Quinn humour and some sweet vocal harmonies to boot.

Troy Kingi - Album Review: Holy Colony Burning Acres
23 Jul 2019 // by Jason Peters
The third instalment of Troy Kingi’s 10/10/10 challenge has arrived (ten albums in ten genres over ten years) Holy Colony Burning Acres delves into the dark corners of worldly indigenous issues and politics, following in the footsteps of NZ’s politically charged Herbs and infused with empathetic Marley inspired consciousness. Troy has not only drawn upon issues that affect Maori in his homeland but broadened the narrative palette to include stories and challenges from his indigenous friends globally as well.

Derek Browne - Album Review: Dreaming House
16 Jul 2019 // by Jason Peters
Derek Browne - the talented singer and songwriter for dDub, a roots n rock brass infused collective that dominated festivals and airwaves in previous years with successful tunes Hesitate No, Quicksand and Medicine Man, now presents us with his latest and sadly final solo album called Dreaming House. Derek was tragically diagnosed with terminal cancer in 2018 and was told he had a matter of months to live; devastating news but through pure grit, determination and his unwavering love for music Derek set about recording what would be his departing album.

Pluto - Single/Video review: Oh My Lonely
09 Jul 2019 // by Jason Peters
Just when you thought this band were dead and buried, Pluto once again rise from the ashes and hit us with another sweet slice of Kiwi indie alt rock. These guys had two very successful singles from 2005’s album Pipeline Under The Ocean; Long White Cross and Dance Stamina and it’s great to hear almost 15 years later they still haven’t lost their knack for crafting cool pop sonic tunes that retain a groove.

Troy Kingi - Single Review: Babylon Grows
01 Jul 2019 // by Jason Peters
The first I’ve heard of this concept 10/10/10 (ten albums in ten genres over ten years) and it’s a very cool challenge for this talented artist to set, the next installment will be called Holy Colony Burning Acres which delves into the dark corners of worldly indigenous issues and politics, weighty subject matter indeed. First cab off the rank is single/video Babylon Grows.

Sons Of Zion - Single Review: Come Home
19 Jun 2019 // by Jason Peters
Come Home is the latest single by rising stars Sons Of Zion, coming off the huge success of previous single Drift Away. This new track sounds a lot like the rambunctious older sister to Drift Away.

Soaked Oats - EP Review: Sludge Pop
13 Jun 2019 // by Jason Peters
Soaked Oats are a quirky four headed indie beast hailing from the great southern city of Dunedin, a city that’s very well known for its plethora of fine alternative bands over the years, these guys carry on that tradition with their latest offering a 5 track EP called Sludge Pop.Sludge Pop kicks off with opening track Shuggah Doom, I really dig the dreamy guitar tones and laid back vocal delivery on this tune, this one reminds me of the band Pavement, with cool and witty lyrics like “Well it’s no wonder there’s thunder but don’t forget your lighting crew, yes if there’s a film going on then be sure it’s not all about you” the outro picks up the pace and builds into a sweet sonic blast of musical bliss.
