Biography

There are 2 groups under the name Punches.

1. A Brooklyn-based group whose sound has disco influenced old school house vibes.
2. A New-Zealand-based pop duo whose music is a mix of melancholia, electronica, pop, guitars and folk.

1. PUNCHES was born during a cab ride one cold, Brooklyn December night, with thoughts of warm weather and the perfect summer soundtrack. Composed of twin brother DJs Finger on the Pulse and Alan Astor, PUNCHES is united by a common goal to get you moving. The sound is dynamic and fresh, heavily influenced by disco vibes with indie elements. They have produced original tracks featuring Alan Astor on vocals, as well as an official remix for indie pop sweethearts Au Revoir Simone. Their first original track is “Let Go.”

2. Punches are Kelly Steven (vocals/guitar) and James Duncan (guitar/vocals/bass). They released their debut EP in March 2006 on Arch Hill Recordings.

Kelly and James met while spinning around blind-folded playing pin the tail on the donkey at a mutual friends party. Kelly could tell by the way James got the tail on the donkeys face and not the backside that his real talents lay with music - and so they started recording a few songs at his home studio in Mt Roskill.

Punches music is a mix of melancholia, electronica, pop, guitars and folk. In the live setting James plays guitar with his array of effects and Kelly is on vocals and bass. The music is supported by a simple drum machine beat and the odd atmospheric interlude – giving the songs space for Kelly’s beautiful and unique voice to move.
