71 Sunset

Bio

71 Sunset are an alternative-rock band based in Auckland, who have drawn on a vast range of influences to create their own unique sound.

Signed to AAA Records late in 2013, the self-produced Mule EP (recorded with Andrew Buckton at studio 203) was released on the label early in 2014. The EP's title track and video received strong radio and TV play, as well as receiving critical recognition both inside and outside New Zealand.

MetalMusicArchives.com said "There is a real honesty about this music, it feels 'real' and grunty in an era when music often feels false and manufactured" while Muzic.net.nz followed that with "The music of 71 Sunset has been described by the Rock FM as "great hooks and solid riffs". An apt description of what can also be described as a throwback to seventies Hard Rock with a modern twist. Hard and fast, an EP just isn't enough. I can't wait to see more released from these guys."

In April 2014 the band entered Red Room Recording studios to commence work on their first full length album. With producer Matt TeMatera Smith at the helm, the sound of things to come started taking shape. The bond between producer and band quickly formed, resulting in an extremely creative partnership.

Each of the guys has strong views on their role and approach to the band, and are available for interview.

The bands latest Album Bitter Earth was released on the 4 Dec 2015.
