Cheap Sav For Dead Friends

Bio

Cheap Sav For Dead Friends is one of Tamaki Makaurau’s most exciting new indie rock acts.

Hailed as “a power-pop act whose practised precision seems to belie their newbie tag*”, Cheap Sav’s six track debut EP showcases the band’s versatility, heart, self-deprecating humour, and keen ear for a catchy hook.

“…good riff-laden suburban bedroom pop tunes...” - *13th Floor

With two lead-vocalist/guitarist/songwriters in Joe Dekkers-Reihana and Jack Buchanan, Cheap Sav’s catalogue is sonically diverse while still maintaining a cohesive and distinct sound. The rhythm section of Sam Clavis (bass) and Taylor Hall (drums) is one of the tightest and best-looking in the biz.

A band of many influences, Cheap Sav enjoy creating eclectic riff-laden melodic rock and infectious pop blends, evidenced with energetic opener and focus track from their debut EP Emotional, a catchy as hell, good time alt-pop track that is a live favourite both with the band and their fans.

Having all been good friends long before starting Cheap Sav, the band’s closeness is evident in their sophisticated arrangements and their energetic and playful live shows.

While Joe and Jack primarily write and sing the songs, the band are a very self-sufficient and collaborative unit whose talents and patience with each other allowed them to record, produce, and engineer the entire EP themselves - and emerge from the process still getting along together.

Influenced by a diverse range of artists spanning multiple genres, Cheap Sav are a band who defy classification, happy to remain genreless. Says Jack: “We have a pretty wide range of influences, and as a result our catalogue of songs is pretty sonically diverse. We don’t let ourselves get locked into one sound, style, or genre, which keeps things exciting for us.”

With a live collection of over 20 original songs, a full-length album will be sure to follow, but for now Cheap Sav are happy to have the first songs they ever played together as a band on their debut EP. Cheap Sav For Dead Friends are now ready to celebrate all their hard work with a release party, flying ever upwards and intent on having a good time!
