Post-punk favourites Guardian Singles tour Russell to Dunedin

02 February 2021 - 0 Comments

Auckland-based post punks Guardian Singles are hitting the road, on their first tour since signing a multi-album deal with Chicago label Trouble in Mind.

Known for their electrifying live shows, hypnotic melodies and ferocious energy, Thom Burton (SoccerPractise / Wilberforces) Durham Fenwick (Green Grove) Yolanda Fagan (The Echo Ohs / Na Noise) and Fiona Campbell (Vivian Girls / Chain and the Gang / Coolies) began by playing only sparsely during the New Zealand summers between 2015-2018, when drummer Campbell was back from the US visiting family and friends. Previous band members include Emily Edrosa (Street Chant), Perry Mahoney (Civil Union / Crash Material) and Madison Eve (Peach Milk).

In 2020 Campbell moved back to NZ and the band released their self-titled debut album on 12" vinyl in February via Auckland label Moral Support. The singles Tea Lights Exploding and Being Alone quickly became bNet favourites, as well as being picked up by college radio stations and blogs in spots around the globe as diverse as Colombia, Italy, Denmark and France. Their song Can’t Stop Moving was the most played track on Auckland’s 95bFM in 2020.

In July 2020, between lockdowns, the band embarked on a tour of New Zealand’s North Island playing the main centres along with stops in Whanganui, Palmerston North and Hamilton.

In September, they played a blistering 25-minute set streamed live to Memphis, Tennessee for legendary DIY punk festival Gonerfest. The performance was viewed by thousands and resulted in the Guardian Singles Bandcamp page crashing from the sudden influx of people trying to buy their record.

Their show also sufficiently impressed Chicago record label Trouble In Mind, with whom they signed a multi-album record deal the following week.

Guardian Singles launch their 2021 Under the Radar presents national tour on Waitangi weekend in the Bay of Islands. They will be hitting all major centres as well as the regions, and playing the South Island for the first time.
