New Zealand bands live at The Great Escape 2024 showcase with NZ Music Commission/M For Montreal Mixer: What’s 14000 Kilometres between Friends”?

The New Zealand Music Commission is thrilled to announce "New Zealand @ The Great Escape 2024," a showcase featuring four of New Zealand's most exciting musical talents. Taking place from 12pm to 4pm on Thursday, May 16th, the event will unfold at Patterns Downstairs in the heart of Brighton for the leading new music festival in the UK. Prepare to be captivated by the debut performances of Ashy, Dartz, Tom Lark, and Earth Tongue as they bring the eclectic sounds of New Zealand to The Great Escape stage.

Kylie Price: Introducing Kylie Price, the captivating songstress who traces her roots to the picturesque landscapes of New Zealand and the vibrant culture of the Philippines. Kylie's music seamlessly blends deeply emotional lyricism with irresistible hooks, creating a sound that is both introspective and universally relatable.

Dartz: Born out of spontaneity and fueled by raw energy, Dartz burst onto the scene in 2019 with their infectious brand of pub-punk. Led by vocalist Danz, the band serves up fast-paced, guitar-driven anthems with razor-sharp lyrics that tackle everything from everyday tales of small-town life to hard-hitting social commentary.

Tom Lark: The brainchild of Shannon Fowler, Tom Lark is an embodiment of indie sensibilities and musical experimentation. While Fowler explores pop indulgence under the pseudonym Shannon Matthew Vanya, Tom Lark serves as an outlet for his indie inclinations, delivering a unique blend of sonic landscapes that defy categorisation.

Earth Tongue: Hailing from Wellington, Earth Tongue is a heavy psych rock duo comprising guitarist Gussie Larkin and drummer Ezra Simons. Known for their mastery of fuzz-smothered riffs and off-kilter drumming, Earth Tongue has been mesmerising audiences since their emergence in 2016, sending listeners into transcendental states with their immersive sonic experiences.

Don't miss this opportunity to experience the diverse sounds of New Zealand's music scene at The Great Escape 2024. Join us as we celebrate the talent and creativity of these four exceptional artists on the international stage.
