Gig & Concert News - Thatta's sushi train tour of NZ - March 2012

Thatta's sushi train tour of NZ - March 2012

16 February 2012 - 0 Comments

The word "thatta" loosely translates to "miscellaneous" or "something complex and wide-ranging". This is exactly what one can expect to experience at a live show from the band who has adopted this word as their namesake.

This five piece synth-rock group from Tokyo is known for their fearless and frenetic live performances that have been exciting crowds around Japan since 2006. While making a name for themselves in the indie music scene in their homeland, they also have had the opportunity to support touring international acts in recent months, including New Zealand's own Die!Die!Die! and Decortica along with Casiokids from Norway

thatta shows noticeable diversity in their music, from their melodic pop sounds to their mesmerising guitar riffs. It is not surprising that the band's influences also come from a diverse background, as they have taken inspiration from the likes of Madchester heavyweights, the Stone Roses and Happy Mondays to several alternative guitar bands from the U.S, including the Pixies and Sonic Youth.

With their first E.P 'Viva la Majority' released last summer and several new tracks being recorded for release in the near future, thatta are bringing their eclectic sound overseas for the first time, with four shows around New Zealand this March.
