No Man's Land - Single Review: Darling

23 Jun 2023 // A review by Kerry MB

If you haven’t yet heard of four piece, all female band, No Man’s Land, then don’t panic.

Having been on the scene for a while now, they have released a swag of singles since 2022, so there is plenty to catch you up on.

With a sound that blends sometime acoustic, indie and alternative, I can definitely say, as generic as those genre’s may be at times, No Man’s Land certainly doesn’t fit the mould and have something that is uniquely theirs.

With all aspects of this single done wholly by the ladies, including the recording, mastering and mixing, it just adds to their solid musicianship and what can be achieved.

Darling is their latest single, and despite the commitment of university (yes, all four members attend) it’s amazing that they still carve out time to write and record music.

Darling is a stunner of a track. Beautifully arranged with even better melody and poise. It is a track that has a lot of heart and lyrically, very emotive. You can tell how much passion there is collectively, but interestingly enough it translates individually too. That sounds a little strange to say, but let me elaborate. Every musical inflection you can hear from each member as well as collectively. That kind of pronounced musicianship is something I don’t hear very often, and it's refreshing.

A whole lot of love for this track and No Man’s Land. Keep at it ladies because music needs more of this.

Rating: ( 5 / 5 )

Thousand Limbs - Album Review: The Aurochs
16 Jul 2024 // by Kerry MB
Thousand Limbs has been on the scene now for a few years (since 2016) and have gained quite the following since, for their powerhouse of instrumental metal. Now, if you are also a fan of Kerretta and Nine Inch Nails then Thousand Limbs will be right up your alley.
Crowded House - Album Review: Gravity Stairs
10 Jun 2024 // by Kerry MB
In a moment we’ve all been waiting for, Crowded House, who need no introduction have released their new album, Gravity Stairs. It’s only been a little over two years since their last offering, Dreamers Are Waiting (2021) and it seems fans just can’t get enough.
Government Pest - EP Review: Vol. 3
05 Jun 2024 // by Kerry MB
Formed from the ashes of local bands, Hellborne and Wall of Silents to name a few, Government Pest have been on the scene since 2014 and have never failed to amaze fans with their solid metal offerings and swag of albums over the years. 2024 is no different and they’re back again with a new EP, Vol.
PARK RD - Album Review The Novel
23 May 2024 // by Kerry MB
It’s easy to see why Auckland five-piece, PARK RD is making some noise, figuratively and literally with their debut album, The Novel. Heavy on the indie, but far from light with solid guitar riffs and pop and funk sensibilities, PARK RD are a great example of solid musicianship.
Bad Schematics - Album Review: C O L L I D E
01 May 2024 // by Kerry MB
Manawatu might seem one of the unlikeliest places to find some damn good alt-rock pop punk, even more so when you add elements of metal, but stranger things have happened and I’m here to tell you it’s true, and their name is Bad Schematics. Not a name that may be familiar (yet), but they are a pretty determined bunch, having released their debut EP, Keep Your Gods in a flurry of a few short weeks, in 2023.
Matt Hay - Album Review: Dog and Pony Show

Matt Hay may not be a name you’re familiar with yet. Well, better late than never.
Gig Review: Stretch To Mould @ The Welsh Dragon, Wellington - 30/03/2024
31 Mar 2024 // by Kerry MB
The building once described as Wellington’s ‘fondest inconvenient convenience in the land’ by one commentator, The Welsh Dragon Bar (and Scorpio’s Restaurant) has been known as a few different things throughout it’s nearly 100-year history. From the original public convenience for Wellingtonians and its tramways employees and passengers when it was first built in 1928, to a theatre prop space, tea house and café, and for many years now, a unique but tiny Taj Mahal looking music venue, in the middle of the road on Cambridge Terrace.
Midwave Breaks - EP Review: Standing Inside Out
24 Mar 2024 // by Kerry MB
Midwave Breaks. The Tauranga duo that has what feels like a boundless creative energy, while also fitting in an impressive touring schedule that is here, there and everywhere.
