'Calm Me Down’ by BlackSandDiva

'Calm Me Down’ by BlackSandDiva


‘Calm Me Down’ is the infectious first single release from the BlackandDiva’s second album Rāwāhi. This track has a classic funk/soul feel withCat Tunks sweet, smokey voice. With a live band and Jazz influence, ‘Calm Me Down’ and in fact the whole Rāwāhi album is the perfect soundtrack for warm afternoon lounge gatherings and wintery road-trips.

BlackSandDiva is no ordinary NZ band and are definitely unique within the NZ music landscape. BlackSandDiva have travelled the world and wowed crowds through the Pacific and soon to head to Korea and Fiji, which is an annual trip for Cat and the band.

As well as warming the grassy dance-floors of NZ festivals such as The Waiheke Jazz Festival and Oratia Jungle Festival, BlackSandDiva have shared the billing with many of NZ's top acts.

With a strong vocal style that has seen lead singer Cat Tunks as a session vocalist across the globe, BlackSandDiva excel in their live set, which definitely brings a “hybrid soul, skank beats, and smooth jazz that falls into a backdrop of Tunks's seductive vocal style” (NZ Musician Magazine).

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
