Music News - Guardian Singles' second album 'Feed Me To The Doves' out today

Guardian Singles' second album 'Feed Me To The Doves' out today

26 May 2023 - 0 Comments

'Highly anticipated' may be a term that is overused, but not when applied to Feed Me To The Doves, the second album from Auckland Tāmaki Makaurau-based post-punks Guardian Singles.

Considered by many both here and overseas as one of the most exciting New Zealand bands around right now, Guardian Singles began as a sporadic get-together of musically accomplished friends.

Thom Burton (SoccerPractise / Wilberforces / Moppy), Durham Fenwick (Dimmer / Erny Belle / Green Grove), Yolanda Fagan (Na Noise / Half Hexagon) and Fiona Campbell (Vivian Girls / Chain and the Gang / The Coolies) began by playing only sparsely during the New Zealand summers between 2015-2018, when drummer Campbell was back from the USA visiting family and friends.

In 2020 Campbell moved back to Aotearoa and they 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 Student Radio Network 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, and 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 the North Island, playing the main centres, also taking 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. It was viewed by thousands, and resulted in their bandcamp page crashing from the sudden influx of people trying to buy their record. Their show also sufficiently impressed Chicago based record label Trouble In Mind, whom they signed a multi-album record deal with the following week.

Their sophomore album Feed Me to the Doves was recorded at Neil Finn's Roundhead Studio in Auckland and is being released today – Friday May 26th – by Trouble In Mind. The album is available digitally on Bandcamp, and on limited edition whirlpool blue vinyl from all good record stores.
