The Tacks - Single Review: One Last Goodbye

05 Feb 2020 // A review by Kerry Monaghan

Hailing from Christchurch and featuring members of local Punk bands Nervous Jerk, Zhukov, Mental Fatal and Blame Thrower is the New Wave/Goth/Post Punk outfit, The Tacks.

Having formed in 2019, their sound is a combination of 80's synth with a definitive punk rhythm and a whole lot of goth. Think The Smiths and The Cure but with a flavour all of their own.

They’ve just released their new single, One Last Goodbye and they make no apologies for the stripped back one minute and twenty nine seconds of raw and honest simplicity.

Bittersweet and edgy with no frills sums this song up best. With simple harmonies and a catchy melody, you can sense the ferocious energy hidden within. This single, while perfect as it is, only serves to scrape the surface of what is to come from their upcoming EP, and I can't wait to hear what they will unleash next.

Rating: ( 5 / 5 )

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.
