Reb Fountain

    Celebrated singer-songwriter Reb Fountain's forthcoming self-titled album marks a new chapter in the kiwi artist's career and her first full-length release on Flying Nun Records. Reb Fountain came together in the well-seasoned walls of Neil Finn's iconic Roundhead Studios in Auckland, New Zealand. This arrangement came about after Fountain performed, recorded and toured with Finn through his 'Out of Silence' album cycle, and it seemed only natural. Long-time studio collaborator and head engineer at Roundhead, Simon Gooding, manned the helm of Fountain's 3-week recording stint, alongside the legendary Dave Khan on producing duties and Chris Chetland (Kog Studios) who mastered the final result.

    The album features a range of musical cameos including Finn Andrews, Ben Woolley (The Yarra Benders), Elroy Finn and Logan Compain. The ten-track record features singles Faster, and her new single Samson which premiered worldwide on The FADER with a captivating video featuring kiwi drag-superstar Medulla Oblongata. Over the span of her illustrious career as an independent singer-songwriter, Fountain has become well-known for her earnest and honest approach to storytelling, garnering a close following of fans around the world and in her home, New Zealand. While spearheading a career of her own, Reb has recorded and performed with the likes of Neil Finn, Tami Neilson, The Eastern, Don McGlashan, Marlon Williams, Steve Abel, and more. Her 2017 EP Hopeful & Hopeless saw Fountain awarded Best Country Music Artist at the 2018 NZ Music Awards. The song of the same name won the 2018 APRA AMCOS NZ Best Country Song. Over the last year, Fountain has roamed Europe, the UK and US, performing with Finn Andrews as well as sharing her solo work with the world.

    Mermaidens

    Look Me In The Eye

      Dancing in the lively afterglow of Perfect Body, Mermaiden's internationally acclaimed Flying Nun debut, a new flame burns. The Wellington-based trio now approach 2019 with an eagerly awaited follow up. Enter the depths of their new album, Look Me In The Eye.

      Earmarked by the trio's April split single release ?You Maintain The Stain / Cut It Open, the group (made up of friends Lily West, Gussie Larkin and Abe Hollingsworth) are in new terrain. Exploring power and control in a confronting new lens, the trio are focused on the gatekeepers and dominators of the world; dissecting their power, one song at a time.

      Recorded with long-time Mermaidens collaborator, audio engineer James Goldsmith, Look Me In The Eye sees the band pushing new sonic boundaries in a body of work that is as severe and progressive as it is vibrant and exhilarating.

      At the heart of the record lies the thematic exploration of female voices, as co-lead vocalists Larkin (guitar) and West (bass), with dynamic support from Hollingsworth (drums) expose embedded motifs of exterior masks, human relationships and power dynamics with unflinching fervour. The voices and perspectives of both frontwomen give shape to the record with equal footing, creating a dialogue around female collaboration and friendship in an ode to the complexities of the human experience. 

      Grayson Gilmour

      No Constellation

      So, perhaps we could tell some romantic story about a kid who turns to music during their early teens in an effort to save themselves from the boredom of swampy small town New Zealand. A couple of albums later they pack their bags for the big smoke, chasing the dream, etc etc... Add a few more releases, four or five years and now we have "No Constellation from Grayson Gilmour".

      Hailing from Palmerston North, Grayson Gilmour began his solo recordings at age 16 and has now teamed up with the re-launched Flying Nun for his fifth album "No Constellation". As one quarter of New Zealand band So So Modern, Grayson has spent the last years juggling between playing and recording with the band and his own 'bedroom/studio recluse' projects. All up "No Constellation" is a culmination of ideas built up over the last two-years - much of which he spent touring overseas with So So Modern. With a pile of praise in his home country and the New Zealand Herald declaring it; 'a clear contender for local record of the year.'
