Light Years live this summer with Shapeshifter and The Nudge.
As New Zealand's premiere exponents of drum & bass and their own unique brand of 'heavy soul', Shapeshifter need little in the way of introductions. 2012 was a particularly busy year for the lads - prepping their soon to be released album, headlining festivals throughout Europe, and playing the UK's legendary WOMAD festival as part of its 30th birthday celebrations.
Kora provides the soundtrack to your summer this December. With a new album and tour dates.
Their unique brand of funk has seen them labelled 'mystery musical superheroes' thanks to their genre-busting musical fusion. Their celebratory live shows are the band's natural environment, an ideal way to hail the mothership with their 'alien funk'. With their highly anticipated new album "Light Years" released on Oct 26, Kora's legion of fans will have even more songs to yell lustily back at them when they hit the summer circuit this December.
A fit as natural as our own beloved fush and chups, Kora will be joined by The Nudge. Both on the same bill is a stroke of genius. Together, tapping into a rich vein of roots music processed through a uniquely local filter. Wellington's The Nudge produce an equally hard to pigeon-hole noise - organ drenched and soul inflected, psychedelic, and bluesy. The perfect accompaniment to a balmy afternoon at the beach.
