Princess Chelsea is the solo recording project of Princess Chelsea from Auckland, New Zealand. Performing live in a city near you soon with help from her best friends Jonathan Brunette, Pikachunes, Bradley Artesque and Gay Kings Queen.
Andrew Keoghan's art-pop fuses a groovy early eighties' new wave sound with today's carefully constructed new-folk for some contemporary good measure. His debut LP Arctic Tales Divide was recently released to favorable response in his homeland, with the New Zealand Herald calling it "a magical, multi-layered pop gem" and "an early contender for local album of the year".

Street Chant won the coveted Critic’s Choice Award at this year’s New Zealand Music Awards. Not bad for a band who’ve only recently released their debut LP Means. And what exactly are the critics saying? Esteemed NZ music journo Grant Smithies put it best: “Means’ displays a refreshing absence of the usual tiresome indie-pop pussyfooting. ‘Blister’ and ‘Yr Philosophy’ are such perfectly- judged collisions of mania and melody, you could be listening to the Buzzcocks, but fast and loud are not this band’s only setting; “Stoned Again” slows down and stretches out into an unusually insightful song about young people taking drugs to escape suburban boredom. Elsewhere the warm waves of guitar distortion recall Dinosaur Jnr., The Pixies and Sonic Youth, but the band’s free noise enthusiasms are marshalled by a strong pop sensibility throughout.”Street Chant has toured with their spiritual antecedents The 3Ds, were hand-picked to play around Australia with The Dead Weather and make their US debut at CMJ 2010.
The Golden Awesome
Cairo Knife Fight
Cairo Knife Fight bend all the rules. With a drummer stepping out of the shadows to lead, and songs that don't just follow the tried and true but grow and develop as you listen. They are a band to set your heart on fire.
