Broods' Favourite NZ Arists

Broods' Favourite NZ Arists

Caleb Nott gives us his favourite acts from the land of the Hobbit.

Summer is no longer coming; it's pretty much here, which means that Perth's Wonderland Festival is also getting scarily close. Hitting Langley Park on Saturday 19 December, it'll feature Alison Wonderland, Dune Rats, The Kite String Tangle, Koi Child, Safia, Sweater Beats, one special act TBA, and New Zealand duo Broods. It's been an age since we've had the siblings Cott over in the west, and in advance of the show we asked Caleb for a little guide to the New Zealand music scene outside of Lorde, and he threw us a few gems:

MATTHEW YOUNG

I actually discovered Matthew through Troye Sivan, and fell in love instantly. If anyone is into Frank Ocean you will love Matt's music.

THE LEERS

These guys are actually mates of mine, so I guess I'm a bit biased. Great summer indie-rock!

HANS PUCKET

These guys are about to release a second EP and it's gonna be wicked. Just some really good NZ psych-pop (if you were going to put a genre label on it). 

HIGH HØØPS

In his own words this is "poolside pop". Great sexy summer jams that everyone will love!

LEISURE

One of the best of NZ's latest exports - they just finished a mini-world tour, some of the best road trip music out there!
