Kicking off with an album release celebration show at Cassette Number Nine on May 16th they carry on down country finishing up in Christchurch on the 31st.

The album “Blues & Oranges” expands the sound shaped on their debut “Lesser Flamingo”, where they fused catchy melodic pop songs with the spirited energy of punk and dunked it in a vat of psychedelic sounds.
