Lost Vessels

Bio

Lost Vessels are one of Auckland’s most promising young rock acts, a high-energy 5-piece pop-punk band fronted by singer Eileen Jolly, channelling dynamic, catchy choruses with dual vocalists and a super-tight rhythm section not afraid of a half-time breakdown or two to get heads nodding.

After dozens of electrifying live performances in the last 18 months, the band won the Ding Dong Lounge Battle Of The Bands in November last year, and have subsequently recorded a debut EP with Dave Rhodes (Blindspott, Stylus) at Roundhead Studios to be released in the third quarter of 2023. The 5-track EP is a mixture of upbeat and catchy party pop-punk (Nostalgia, Sleep) and darker, emotional anthems (FMB, I Don’t Owe You).

Ethan and Cam bonded over pop punk while playing in hard rock outfit Let’s Get Nuked, were joined by Kyle shortly after and started gigging with their then bassist and vocalist but as with many others they discovered that Covid got in the way and they ended up needing a new singer.

After a couple lockdowns, Cam asked Eileen to try out, since when they have never looked back. Due to health issues, their bassist had to leave the band and they found John who has been laying down the low end since last year. There are varying levels of experience in the band but many have already paid their dues in the likes of Night Gaunts (3 albums and 2 tours of the USA), Yebiisu (2 EPs), The Managers (2 albums, an EP and approx. 30 members over 2 decades). Members have also accompanied some internationals such as Stranger Cole (Jamaica), Chris Murray (USA) and Tyson Ritter of All American Rejects.

There is a concern within the band that they may actually be responsible for more than their fair share of natural disasters as well:

Recording drums at the Roundhead Studios - Auckland Floods
Recording in Whitianga the first attempt - Cyclone
Recording in Whitianga the second attempt - Slips and road closures
Recording the music video the first attempt - More floods
Ding Dong 10 Year anniversary show Auckland - State of Emergency and Floods

They have been making waves on the local circuit and have already built up a solid base, playing with the likes of Skinny Hobos, Coridian, Stray Dogs, Viices, Holloway, The Not Okays, The Boondocks, Channeled, Finger Tight, Living State, Cherry Punch and more.

For fans of:
Paramore, All Time Low, Jimmy Eat World and influenced by many genres from Motion City Soundtrack to Smashing Pumpkins to Strung Out to Tori Amos.
