A lot of New Zealand music these days is not to my taste, however there are two relatively unknown bands (in NZ at least) that I love and have seen and met multiple times in person.

Lets start with…..

Three Kiwi brothers who hit Canada to get their foot into the US music scene – and it worked. NZ’s biggest rock export ever. Amazing guys with their music and their attitude to the fans.

Next up….

Came across Black Smoke Trigger during the Devilskin tour last year, (2019) and was hooked. These local guys (Napier) have got a great sound and again, great attitude with their music and fans.

Video taken by me during one of their openers for Like A Storm earlier this year (2020).

So go check both of these bands out!
