WELCOME NEW DAWN & MOTTE!!

Friday, July 21st, 2017

A big, belated welcome to NEW DAWN and MOTTE who have this year joined the collective!

New Dawn

NEW DAWN – THE DYING LIGHT

Canterbury drone queens, Anita Clark and Indira Force, combine forces on the first NEW DAWN release, The Dying Light.

As ‘Album of the Week’ on The Spinoff in January it was described as ambient soundscapes that are at once beautiful and harsh. If words like ‘textural’, ‘layered’ and ‘cosmic’ give you warm feelings, this five-track project should be emanating from your speakers ASAP.”

Listen here:


MOTTE – STRANGE DREAMS

Anita’s solo-project MOTTE – comprised of violin, loop & voice – is complemented on her album, Strange Dreams, with synth work by Indira.

The album was praised by Sunday Star Times reviewer Grant Smithies who wrote, “I’m smitten by this record… The six tracks here make sly references to traditional violin phrasing from folk music and gypsy jazz… It’s a burnished, hovering, ever-mutating sound, beautiful and anxious by turns.”

Listen here:


Both albums are available for digital download and on very limited edition cassette tape from our online store or from Death Ray Records in Newtown, Wellington.

You can also get Motte’s ‘Strange Dreams’ on vinyl thru Coco Muse Releases.

Thanks for reading, lots more soon!

TO SPEND MORE TIME LOOKING AT THE GROUND THAN AT THE SKY – AN INTERVIEW W/ I.E.CRAZY


Claire Duncan

“Maybe if I was a happier person and the world were less fucked up, or if I could just stomach the putrid bullet of being a good capitalist and expressed myself through home renovations and new curtains, I wouldn’t feel the need to write music at all.” – Claire Duncan
