It’s been quite a year for Dave Baxter and his Avalanche City pseudonym. His first song 'Love Love Love'  became New Zealand’s fastest selling digital single, while the folk-infused pop sounds of his debut album Our New Life Above the Ground, found favour with fans and critics alike.

Assembling an array of merry minstrels wielding accordions, mandolins and glockenspiels Avalanche City played a series of international showcases including dates in Los Angeles, New York and London. We catch them on their return home, at The Studio on Auckland’s K’Rd.

The songs are: Snow, The Streets, Go, We Fall Down, Everybody Knows, You & I, Love Don't Leave, The Citizens, Drive On, Slowly Over Me, Love Love Love, and Ends In The Ocean.

Recorded and produced by Andre Upston for Radio New Zealand National.
