Transit of Venus

Bio

Transit of Venus are a brand new female fronted indie pop-rock band from Auckland. They exploded onto the scene in 2009 instantly earning a reputation for exciting live shows. Their debut EP 'Bitter Sweet Love' has been very well received along with killer video for first single 'Meatmarket'.

Transit of Venus began as the recording project of Kristie Addison. Kristie spent the last few years as the front-woman and songwriter for Amperzahn while writing for Transit of Venus as a secret-side-project and adventure in home recording. In 2008 Kristie shifted her focus to Transit of Venus and began recording an album worth of material. Tired of working alone, she called on an eclectic range of musician friends to get involved, including Tory Staples (Jonny Love, Chris Reed, ex Battle Circus), Mike Johns (ex Revolution Brother), Robin Liu ad Chris Chunk (Infinite Flying Kick), Dave Edtmaier (Miscreant), Harry Champion (The Exiles, Josh Lees) and James Dudley (Plum Green band).

The 'Bitter Sweet Love' EP release is a collection of songs from these sessions. It was recorded in Kristie's bedroom and The Manor Studios, with additional tracking at Miscreant Recordings where it was mixed and mastered. 2009 saw the formation of a fantastic live band and a deal with Black Doris Music.
