Bush Lawyer - Single Review: Daisy

03 Jul 2023 // A review by Kerry MB

With a name like Bush Lawyer, the curiosity is definitely piqued to check out this band, a four piece who hail from Te Whanganui-a-Tara, Wellington, and their second single, Daisy.

With a self-confessed sound of 'surf rock, reggae and ska’ they have hit the nail on the head there. Daisy has an interesting contrast of being upbeat but low key. The ska influence doesn’t take a back seat either and adds some nice flavour with the addition of trombones or trumpets (maybe both!) It may not be skanking dance level but it is still a perfect tune to get your boogie on, whatever that may look like. No judgement here.

As the single name might suggest, it is indeed about a lucky lady of vocalist/guitarist, Caleb O’Fee. A simple and very sweet love song.

As you would expect, the melody of Daisy is spot on. The riffs are very reminiscent of The Beach Boys, and I love that. It has the quintessential summer vibe, but the kind with the sun setting and a cold beer in the hand.

It’s clear there is a solid musicianship in Bush Lawyer and those jam session have paid off. There is no charades, or disconnection here. Just four guys who love music equally, have great talent and want to show it off to the world. Exactly what music is all about.

Daisy is a solid second single from Bush Lawyer. If you’re having a bad day, this is the perfect tune to turn that around. Well done guys.

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.

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.

Pale Flag - EP Review: Imperium
29 Jan 2024 // by Kerry MB
With a lot of misconceptions about deathcore, it’d be easy to lump Pale Flag into “one of those bands” based on the sub-genre alone. Luckily, I love metal in the most extreme and Pale Flag just so happen to create deathcore of the finest, which makes it even better to enjoy.
