Music News - Live Vibes Taking Place This July

Live Vibes Taking Place This July

29 June 2020 - 0 Comments

Live Vibes is a Creative New Zealand funded initiative which aims to stimulate the NZ music scene during the time of COVID-19 bringing you some of New Zealand's most talented up and coming artists, recorded in the highest definition audio and video quality, and streamed right to the comfort of your own couch.

Broadcasting on Saturday the 25th of July from 7pm - 10pm on Freeview Channel 200 and streamed across a range of social media channels, Live Vibes seeks to empower all artists involved and deliver a polished live set for their fans.

Live Vibes is filmed at Anthology Lounge featuring a unique lighting design by Angus Muir Design (Splore, Illuminate), footage by JR Imaging and audio mixed and mastered by Scott Seabright Productions (Alien Weaponry, Mumford and Sons). Live Vibes is brought to you by a dream team of New Zealand creatives at the top of their game.

Footage includes the combined work of 3 moving camera-men, 3 stationary shots and a 360* angle to capture every part of each artist's masterclass live showcase.

We are currently looking for any additional Brands & Social Presences who would like to restream this event live in tandem with us during the premiere date and utilize the content to promote themselves.


Strangely Arousing are a 5-piece progressive reggae/ska band, effortlessly blending other genres and styles of music to create their unique sound, laced with brass, synth, dub, and guitar. Strangely straddles the line between the bizarre you know you love and the weird you don’t know you love yet, like old pros.

Whether you come to marinate in dubs and bass, or simply to melt into a puddle on the floor, Strangely Arousing offers a new wave of music inspired by New Zealand’s legendary hip-hop and reggae dub forefathers.

Strangely are currently working on their much-anticipated EP set for release September 2020, and bring their eclectic, electric live set to Live Vibes filled with a range of instrument wizardry and lyricism.

Otium are a 5 piece with a diverse spectrum of influences ranging from Aotearoa’s own Fat Freddy’s Drop and Sons of Zion, to soul collectives Vulfpeck and Snarky Puppy.

In 2018 Otium released You, a two-track project comprising the thematically similar but vastly different tracks, With You and For You.

The band enjoyed a busy and successful 2019. They shook up Raglan with their Soundsplash set, celebrated the release of new single Dollar For The Man and revived their Late Night Hype local talent showcase. Currently they are working on a new EP set for release early 2021. Otium bring their signature tight, polished and punchy live vibes to this showcase.

Hailing from Auckland’s North Shore, The Vibes gained national attention on X-Factor New Zealand in late 2015. Electric summer festival performances were followed by an EP release which culminated in their seminal album from 2017, Wrap You in the Sun produced by Eddie Rayner.

With 2 new singles released in late 2019 which have accumulated nearly 40,000 streams across platforms & a new album in the works for September 2020 The Vibes bring you their signature live energy and Zeppelin like prowess in a cultivated live set.

Premiere Date:Saturday 25th July | Freeview Channel 200 | Instagram, Facebook, Twitch & YouTube, with The Vibes, Otium, Strangely Arousing.
