ABOUT THE BANDS
FLY MY PRETTIES
The ever-changing collective that is Fly My Pretties will be performing at the North West Wine, Beer & Food Festival in their only Auckland summer show. Six albums deep, the release of latest album String Theory saw the band pushing the boundaries of their traditional folk/rock sound, incorporating spacey vocals and pulsating synths to help push their sound.
Frontman Barnaby Weir will again assemble an all-star cast, combining some of NZ’s most experienced musicians and vocalists, with some of the country’s most exciting up-and-coming talents.
From honey-sweet falsetto to menacing growl, the voice of Julia Deans has offered light and shade to a variety of musical endeavours over the years. From fronting Fur Patrol’s muscular pop-rock to her electro-pop stylings with Tiki Taane; from co-conspirator with renowned supergroup The Adults to sultry chanteuse in Silo Theatre's production BREL; Deans has never shied from adding new strings to her bow.
The North West Wine, Beer & Food Festival will see Julia Deans preview a new collection of songs, set to be released in early 2018, along with favourites from her back catalogue, including her time in Fur Patrol and the Taite Music Prize-nominated solo album Modern Fables.
Alae is what you get when you mix multi-instrumentalists Alex Farrell-Davey and Allister Meffan, two high school mates who are talented musicians in their own right. Add to the mix Jayden Lee on drums, and a new inspiration is born.
Their brand of intimate folk-inspired sounds has seen them play to audiences across New Zealand and Australia in just over two years performing together. The release of new single ‘Too Strung Up’ on November 10 is set to continue to grow the profile of this truly talented outfit.
