New-Zealand singer, songwriter and guitarist Elizabeth Stokes and high-school pal guitarist Jonathan Pierce met bassist Benjamin Sinclair and drummer Ivan Luketina-Johnston at University where they all studied Jazz. They started a project exploring Pop and Rock sounds of their youth, by creating their own, guitar-heavy, Indie-Rock style. They released their debut EP “Warm Blood” in 2016.
This appetizing taster of their first full-length album “Future Me Hates Me” is quite an exhilarating slice of guitar heaven. Blending rousing contemporary Indie-Pop with touches of 60s Guitar-Rock, gives it an unique, full-bodied sound. With a summery melody and whimsical lyrics playing with the stirring drums and the rich electric guitar hooks, you can’t help but like this vitalizing Rock groove.
