Breaking new ground with a uniquely original combination of powerful melodies, drum and bass undertones, emotive vocals, huge guitars, and a fistful of classic pop rock sensibilities, eight is a band for the present with a big future. 'Enveloping soundtracks', 'music to lose yourself in', 'a solid rock outing with bark and bite' is some of the feedback that demonstrates the versatility of this Auckland based five piece.

Till Now - Damien Binder

Critically acclaimed singer/songwriter Damien Binder delivers his second long player this September. Damien's had a whirlwind year which has seen him play at the World Series, SXSW in Texas and tour with likes of David Gray & Marianne Faithfull. First single "Till Now" proved to be a hit at radio and signalled the changes to be heard on the new album.

Aileron - rotor+

Sitting somewhere between noodly experimental electronica and ambient trip-hop boundary pushers, "aileron" is a sculpted sonic landscape. Inspired by a love of patterns, relationship, and the red sheds that dot our rural landscape, aileron explores subtly shifting aural landscapes sometimes empty, sometimes full as a background to the glorious landscapes of aotearoa.The CD also includes a CDROM with two short films.
