Culture Trip stands with Black Lives Matter. This young woman has quietly — or not so quietly, really — made herself a household name for those who love classical music. In her debut album, Pure, became the fastest selling album in the UK classical charts ever. She has sung personally to Queen Elizabeth — on four separate occasions — and to Princes Harry and William. Her first album went down a treat in NZ, going eight times platinum. That album alone resulted in five number one radio singles.
Search for Artists
For a country with a relatively small population, the amount of musical talent New Zealand houses is staggering. A little further down the ladder, however, there are a score of artists who bring the same untethered sense of creativity to their work. A band of three North Island teens, Alien Weaponry are being hailed as one of the most groundbreaking contemporary artists in the global heavy music scene. Alien Weaponry use their voices to address the history of their people, never shying away from the bloodshed that built their country. The Dunedin sound is alive in Soaked Oats , a three-piece crafting laid-back guitar anthems with startling consistency. Witty, sometimes philosophical lyrics and simply gorgeous guitar melodies come as naturally as breathing to this group. Johnathan Bree is pure melancholy, distilled into a formless white substance then pumped into a human-shaped bodysuit. His rich baritone most often overlays ever-so-slightly disconcerting string melodies and razor sharp percussion, creating an air of old-world charm and new age experimentalism.
