Powertool Records release ‘The Election EP’

Powertool Records release ‘The Election EP’.

We at Powertool Records – and our indefatigable artists – are not a team that sits still for long, especially when something big is looming. So we’re sticking it to the ballot box with the release of ‘The Election EP’: 8 artists with few stylistic similarities, but each with a passionate request that we vote – or at least think about what this election means to you.

The ‘Election EP’ contributors are: Gold Medal Famous – our original political band who came to infamy with their 2011 song ‘John Key is a Dick’, now reworked for 2014; ex-pat star Jordan Reyne; Wellington troubadour Mark Airlie; George Henderson and Matthew Bannister (something of a superduo); our own #1 Dylan FanChris Rivers; performer extraordinaire Scarlett Lashes; and the mysterious Glum.

Each of them has also provided us with a synopsis of their song – 'The Election EP' is food for our ears, eyes and minds.

Listen to it here: https://powertoolrecords.bandcamp.com/album/election-ep

The EP is also available on CD; please email andrew@powertoolrecords.co.nz
