Wellington band DARTZ are one of the latest local band to sign to Flying Nun Records - and just weeks ago released their debut album.

The band consist of guitarist Crispy, bassist Clark Mathews, drummer Rollyz, and vocalist Danz - who as well as writing lyrics and singing - also designs all the band art and created the clever political comic ‘Yee Ha The Boys’. 

The four-piece, established in 2019 and have quickly cemented themselves as one of Aotearoa’s fastest, hilarious, up-and-coming rock acts
