Profile for midwavebreaks

Bay of Plenty

Emerging Tauranga Alt-Rock Duo Midwave Breaks have made an impressive impact at Rock radio since launching in 2021, with 2 independent singles in the top 10, and a 3rd
breaching the top 20. Their explosive debut single Lemonade Hand Grenade resonated
across the country, peaking at number 3 on the radioscope rock chart, and came in at
number 510 on the listener-voted Rock 2000.

The band features former Supergroove drummer, and West End ‘Stomp’ performer Paul Russell, joining forces with his brother in arms from late 90’s Auckland rockers Eight, singer-songwriter and guitarist Bruce Conlon. The pair first crossed musical paths at Lynfield College circa 1989, and over the decades since have collectively racked up a haul of gold and platinum selling albums, international song-writing awards, and for Russell, a place in the NZ Music Hall of fame in 2014.

Midwave Breaks music is a modern take on the soundtrack of their youth - epitomized by
80’s-90’s alternative rock/pop - evoking hints of Springsteen and Petty, Cornell and Vedder, and a melting pot of musical influences from past to present. Driven by the energy of the creative process, and with an innate ability to craft songs that capture a moment, the Midwave Breaks sound is purposefully retrospective mixed with the new. With plenty more to come, this formidable duo are a powerhouse of song writing, production, musicianship and live performance.
